House help! What kind of metal; and how do I stop it from rusting?

The porches on my home have a metal roof that is rusting. Can you please help me identify:
1. What kind of metal these are.
2. What course of action should I take to un-rusty them.
The paint store dude said I needed to sand it down, and prep it and then paint it.
The home inspector said there was some stuff you could paint over it and it would take care of the rust, and keep it awesome.
The very special guy at the hardware tried to sell me cans of rustoleum.
