Bob, I had to completely re-smog my '82 40 when I bought it. It's a long process but not impossible. I would suggest to tackle yourself as I don't think too many local shops would know much about it. You only need a cat if your truck came with one. I'm not sure on the '79. Feel free to give me a PM or call if you want to bounce ideas around.

From reading it looks like I need an entire new exhaust system and get the smog pump working. I am not up for the challenge of learning how to do the exhaust - does anyone have any recommendations on where/how to have this done?

Good luck. I would keep that AK plate going as long as possible...
