Sounds like you need a Builder - Garages / Barns / Sheds or a General Contractor (your Search the List category to find well-rated vendors for this work). He or you will also need to get a Structural Engineer to evaluate it and recommend repairs and whether collar ties are appropriate and such - or may advise cheaper to tear down and start over, maybe with some materials reuse.

Note, depending on how it is failing, most roofs do not have collar ties. Do not know what you mean by double banding so can't help there. Depending on construction may or may not need back supports (angle braces) on the posts - if the connecting brackets to the carry beams are adequate they are not used (pretty much old school).
