Question about a metal roof/ attic vent

A friend of mine just bought a house that came with an existing free standing wood stove. Since he knew I worked with fireplaces and chimneys in my previous job he asked me to help him with removing the stove & exhaust pipe. The home is a single story with a metal roof. He would like to maybe install an attic vent or something in the hole left behind from the stove pipe but it seems like every vent I find has non mallable flashing. Any solutions to this short of replacing the sheet on that section of roof?

Thanks. (May take me a while to respond)

Post a picture. I am assuming you want a maliable flange to go over ribbed ag metal? You may need to install a curb and install the vent on top of the curb.
