Corrugated metal garage & roof, trusses are triangular and about 6ft from concrete floor. I’m 6ft6 and have a sore head. Can I brace the joists with metal or wood and cut out the bottoms of them? If so how do I do it and what materials should I use? Thanks

Probably not- those horizontals at 6' are the only things keeping the walls vertical.

One option- move the garage, build a 1' dwarf wall (3 courses of blocks on their sides will be v stable) then put the garage on top.

Or build a proper garage :)
Yeah that could be a solution.
Cut the wall plate straps and jack one side up then lay a course of brick. Leave it a few days repeat for the other side.
