switch from auto to stick trans???

hey guys just got back from a 600 mile trip yesterday my trans and truck did good but I was not super with how the trans worked on some parts of the trip there are some really steep roller coaster like hills when crossing the top of vermont. The problem was that the trans would hold back but when I get towards the bottom of the hill it would'nt shift back up so i could get a running start to go up the next hill but the rpm just went up higher until I messed with the throttle enough to get it to start going faster again. anyway i'm woundering if its possible to swap out the auto for the stick I see theres a spot for the clutch on the floor board also is it possible to change out the single rear wheel axles to the dual axle. my truck is a 4x4 thanks for any info.

2005 Ford F250 6.0 auto 3.73 srw XL package crew cab, air lift air bags, remote start, CFM intake elbow.

Its been done before but its going to cost you if you dont do the labor yourself. It would be cheaper and more reliable if you traded trucks.
