Its coil on plug so not a uni-coil/distrbutor issue

Suggest giving it a burst of starter fluid down the intake. If it's a fuel problem it will fire and run a few seconds on starter fluid. Then check fuel pressure and regulator, etc.

If it doesn't fire with starter fluid, then verify ignition pulses at the coil primaries.

Anytime you're disconnecting or reconnecting wires involving supplemental restraint system (air bags), you should always disconnect the negative terminal from the main battery first.

The risk of the airbag deploying is extremely low, but always better to be safe when working with such powerful devices. Also, if you don't disconnect the battery, you also run the risk of causing a possible fault code to trip as the system will now detect an issue with the restraint system and the code could possibly only be reset by a dealer or by using an expensive OBDII tool.

Also, if you're detailing, There should be no need to even disconnect the front seats unless you were removing them.

So your mechanic is saying that the selector lever on the transmission is moving with the shifter lever? That's hard to believe there would be no resistance at all if that is the case. There is a Ford recall for your model and year for the cable coming disconnected at the transmission. Ford will fix it at no cost. See the link.

PO135 = Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor Heater (HTR 11) circuit (Bank #1)

P1131 = Lack of upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S 11) switch, sensor indicates lean (Bank #1)

P0305 = Cylinder #5 Misfire detected

It looks like you have two separate issues happening. Bank 1 would be the left side of the engine if you were standing in front of the truck looking at the engine. The "upstream" oxygen sensor will be on the exhaust pipe coming from the bank one side of the truck IN FRONT of the catalytic converter. From the codes, it appears that the upstream sensor has gone bad, but the oxygen sensor behind the catalytic converter, or "down stream" is fine.

The misfire on cylinder 5 on the right side of the engine, 2nd one from the front, could be something as simple as a fouled spark plug or a coil malfunction.

To identify if it is a bad coil, swap the #5 cylinder coil with another coil, and see if the misfire follows the relocated coil.

Check fuel pump. Then check the carburetor. Then check for a spark.

Ford CVH is an old design but has proved itself long lasting and reliable. There is lots of information available about every aspect and the timing is among the simplest.
The weakest link has always been the water pump bearing that can fail very quickly without losing coolant. In the early days this was responsible for many bent valves.

To date I haven't experienced any problems with a dragging engine during starting that wasn't caused by the starter and/or battery. That the starter cable becomes hot indicates indicates it is consuming far more current than it should and mostly that would be the fault of the starter.
Does the engine spin over normally without the spark plugs?

Yes, there is a separate fuse for each side. You need to check fuses 106 and 113. The fuse box you need is the one under the hood. That fuse box is normally somewhere near the battery.

The code translates as...P0232 = High Voltage Fuel Pump Secondary Circuit
This is an electrical issue to the fuel pump. A Good Auto Electrician will be able to help you trace where the issue actually is.
