it depends on the shape and slope of the roof. To get an accurate list of panels and trims needed, I would visit the ProDesk of your local Home Depot store with measurements and photos of the roof. They can work up and estimate for the panels and flashings needed. They can also order panels cut to the nearest inch if required to make installation easier. Generally you can take the eave length in feet and divide by 3 to get the number of panels at the length needed. 63' divided by 3 = 21 panels. 21 panel at 16' long is 1008 sf.
Yo know I'm not sure you might have to ask the store or get a hold of the company that makes them, or might to have to paint them yourself
Metal Sales recommends three methods for installing metal roof panels on a building with existing asphalt shingles. The first method is to install battens on the existing shingles, the second method is to remove the shingles and the third method is to install the panels directly over the shingles. The key is to make sure the panels attach to a new substrate that is a level plane. The metal panels will look wavy if they are installed on an uneven surface. All three methods are referenced in Section 1510 in IBC 2012, Section 1511 in IBC 2015 and Section 1511 in IBC 2018. you can google for more info. Make sure your screw is long enough to screw into the existing plywood substrate.

Slightly arched maybe, not curved. If you have a 16' panel and you hold it in the middle of the panel it will curve slightly before bending. That's the extent to which it will curve. The ribs in the panel prevent it from curving too much.
