I would go to a handyman. Would purchase brushable Geocell at Menards or big box store in clear. Also a throw away 4" paint brush, Have handyman use a sheet of plywood they could supply to spread the weight of the service guy. Have him brush the Geocell on the joints and voila, I would expect a dry roof for years for a very little money. Sun room people are pricey and roofing contractor might not be interested in tiny job.

If all the seams are leaking, I would say it was built without the proper gaskets in the first place. I don't think you will be happy with a seam sealer job - I would recommend a roofer remove the panels and reinstall them with proper seam gaskets, otherwise leak repairs is likely to be a perennial issue.
