I want to change from 2 garage doors to one wide one, and take out the center support. How do I sufficiently "beef" up the header? If it's a truss that needs to be inserted, how do I find the design needed for it? Thanks, in advance, for any help you can give me.

You'll need to reframe the wall section around the door. Assuming you want to put in a sixteen foot door, you'll need a double 2x12 header with a plywood spacer and double trimmers.
