aluminum studs

I wanted to re-insulate and install new sheeting on a florida room that has been converted into a bed room , the rooms insulation is so bad the air runs in the summer all day and heat in the winter. I found aluminum studs in the wall would this be a problem or would this be nothing to worry about, also would there be any down side to combine wood studs to eleminate some windows and relocate a door. thanks

You probably found steel studs...

You can leave them with no concern, or can add to the wall with new steel studs or wood. Combining the two side by side is certainly possible if the right fasteners are used.
