We are architects that have done a similar type of project. We removed 6 interior columns to allow a very large barn to be used as a 200 seat summer theater. Even though we are very comfortable with sizing structural beams, we hired a structural engineer to size the beams and design the connections (also very important). And that would be our suggestion to you - hire a structural engineer.
