You might be surprised, but the same tools used for video game development could work for you, depending on what you're looking to do. The heavy hitters are Maya and 3DS Max.

I hate to say this but you should really ask the printer for this; he'll tell you what's the max he can print at. If you speak with their prepress department and the printer operators, they'll really tell you in details what's the best process.

3D Effect objects take a couple of special steps in order to add a stroke effectively. Select the object with the 3D Effect applied and choose Object > Group. In the Appearance Panel, add a New Stroke and then move that Stroke so it is below the Contents. Highlight the stroke in the Appearance Panel and choose Effect > Pathfinder > Add You ...

Since you simply want to change the color of the metallic and you're working on a PNG, you could start by creating a normal silver metallic. There's many tutorials for this. Then you could simply add a layer with your color, and choose a blending mode to colorize it. You can add a layer mask to that layer to keep your transparency. Explore the different ...
