Default Q: installing window

My metal building needs another A/C unit in the upstairs loft.
I'm thinking a new window and window unit.
I've looked at several youtube videos and it looks like a pretty daunting task. Any advice? Should I just hire it done from someone in the metal building business and if I do, what should it cost?

Do you need the window for any other reason? If not just frame the opening the size of the AC unit and anchor to the studs. Should be able to do rather easy with wood or metal studs. Cut the siding after everything is framed up and make sure to flash your opening. Don't know your skill level so you'll have to be the judge.

Change of plans. I am buying a used mini split system cheap so it’ll be pretty straight forward. Thanks
