As I have a "Fever" Strat, I've decided to possibly mod it to death, but cannot decide what pickups to use for it.

Dimarzio: Fast Track 2/Fast Track 1/ Cruiser

Seymour Duncan: Hot Rails/Coo Rail/Cool Rail or SSL-1

EMG: SA set.

I plan on playing metal, but will take a trip down to blues once in awhile.

try the EMG kirk hammett pre wired set.. its a HSS set so you should be able to get your metal from the humbuckers and your blues from the single coils

So VERY true. I use a very similar set in my guitar (81TW/SA/SA as opposed to 81/S/S), and I can get both tones.

You could always mix and match maybe a humbucker and a single coil or even 3 different single coils; for blues, I'd suggest a 1969 CS neck pick up perhaps ( I'm terribly in experienced in this department, so I can guarantee there are better options)

The Strat is SSS, not HSS, so how hard is it to route a slanted single coil space for a humbucker?

It really SHOULD be a humbucker routing under the pickguard.
