If I buy a new pump, do I need to but with or without reservoir, with inline filter our aftermarket filtration system?

You can buy a pump without the reservoir. The inline filters are probably a great idea, but I have never used one. I guess it would depend on how long you expect to keep the truck.

If you went 225K without an inline filter, why bother adding one now? As I said, I have never used one.

Those are just the options that RockAuto gives me. Inline or aftermarket filter.

Generally speaking it can be the bearing or even a small pin hole in one of the PS lines/seals itself causing air to enter the system.
My last pump was clearly leaking from bearing seals, so I bought a re manned Delco pump.
I would suction out all the fluid in reservoir first & get new clean Delco fluid in there..
If it is air in system..
It may quieten down then..

How can I get all the fluid out? I'll try that first, if not buy a new pump.

I pulled the front wheels off the ground, turned it to the stops 10x per side, and it still has a whine. Bad bearings?

If you don't see air bubbles in the reservoir the issue is not air in the system.
