residential metal roof

Live in San Antonio, Tx. Should be replacing asphalt shingle roof in the next couple of years. Am interested in going to a raised seam metal roof. Single story with a 4 / 12 roof pitch. A couple of questions though: 1. can I still use ridge vents with the metal roof? 2. can the metal be painted so that the reflection doesn't blind anybody? 3. if it can be painted, what options do I have regarding colors - would like a light color to help with heat reflection. TIA for any comments.

The roofing would come prepainted.They probaly have a vented metal ridge to match their products.
