Since I have to breed with a Ditto, am I out of luck here again? Or will the move tutor or something like that work?
Also, since I'm going to have to use TM's for EQ and SB, am I basically losing access to those forever, since I can't breed my metagross to anything else?
Bad news. Since Metagross can't be male it can't pass down EQ and SB to anyone, so yes, you will lose those moves. Also, Metagross doesn't learn agility until level 66, and doesn't learn Meteor Mash until level 55. Since neither of those are TMs, HMs, or even move tutor moves, coupled with the fact that beldum can't learn any moves from birth besides takedown, there's no way to have a level 50 metagross like you described.
If you're in Emerald you can actually get more Focus Punch an EQ TMs by keeping some pokemon with pickup in your party. Linoone and zigzagoon are common and may have the ability. To get focus punch the pokemon will need to be lvl 71-90 for a 1% chance of getting it. For EQ it will need to be lvl 91-100 for a 1% chance.
If you're in RS . . . that sucks. The pickup items are different so you can't get them.
