I'm building a shed and it's been my little pet project all summer, but I didn't think too much about the roof, and I'm not sure a wooden one will cut it so I've changed my mind to metal. How do I put a metal roof on a shed?

This guy has a good guide: href="https://woodgears.ca/shed/metal_roof.html" > description Be super careful when you're cutting and lifting. My neighbor cut the top of his finger off last week doing this (I think his partner was nagging him at the time though).
Well done for getting this far. There's something kind of therapeutic about making something with your bare hands, right? My shed is my workshop, I just go in there to chill out. Anyhow, you want to know about the roof! The guys at Home Depot can probably help you out, but this is a good link to know about gabling and the like: href="http://www.semetals.com/MetalRoofing/5V-CRIMP_DETAIL_MANUAL.pdf" > description
I'm pretty detailed so maybe this is too much but have a look at href="http://www.pac-clad.com" > description and click on "drawings/pdfs" at the bottom of the page. This will bring up a matrix of their various panel systems and applicable details. You can see there what manufacturer's suggest (the diagrams are good too). Best of luck!
Ah seriously? That's the easy part dude. You have nothing to worry about. Get down to your hardware super store, get some metal sheets in the size you need, smack em on the roof, build in a couple of supporting beams, drill in the sheets and there you go. Nothing to it! Won't even take you a day.
House Improvements have a whole series devoted to building a shed (on YouTube) but you probably don't need all of that. So, here's part 4, which deals with the roof. Href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvDurqjtcYY" > description
