Yes, there are the same long timing chains and guides on the 5.4 than can wear out (or break).

You can take a flare side bed, remove 6 bolts, unplug some wiring harnesses, disconnect fuel fill and remove old bed, then install. Just a few hours.

Puking coolant is a dead giveaway of a head gasket problem.

5w-20 is what I use.
People a lot smarter than me and know a whole lot more about lubrication and engine design say use 5w-20, and millions of miles have been driven on 5w-20, so that is what I use.
