I have a porcelain fused to metal crown and a metal post. Now i decided to put a zirconia crown, and i want to take off that metal post,because possibly i need to repeat a root canal treatment. my question is how hard is to take off that metal post without ruining a root of a tooth??

Good day
The metal post can be removed with specialized instruments. If the root canal is very old, there is still a chance of root fracture, when attempting removal, due to an old root canal tooth, becoming brittle with time.
