Welcome , Go. Everything you asked about is subject to personal opinion and your pocketbook. It’s all available on this forum and others using the “Search “ function. No need changing anything until you’ve ridden the bike for a while in stock condition and decide your priorities. The stock air filter flows as well as anything when it’s new and clean. No reflash needed until you change the exhaust. You should set your suspension SAG ( look it up) for your weight to get the best handling. Plenty of information on that on the various forums.
Join other Ducati forums, they all have Monster sections. Read what others with the same model have to say. Ducati.ms is a good one.

I am researching a new or new to me monster right now.
Can I ask where you are and what a screaming deal is?

I just picked up my 2017 797 in January for $7k with 2k miles on it. I haven’t ridden a motorcycle since ‘06 and I decided crotch rockets weren’t for me anymore so I went for something a bit more “refined”... got a used 797. I thought it was a good deal because it already had a bunch of Ducabike parts which usually get put on first without messing with the bike to much; mostly aesthetics. It also already had a Termignoni exhaust too (I’m sure I misspelled it).
