Remove window, frame in, insulate, sheetrock inside, house-wrap and replace metal panel(s) outside, install shower enclosure.

May be stuck with that window. In order to remove the siding at least the top row is going to get distroyed trying to pry it off. It's all going to have to come off to below the window in order to blend it back in once the window is gone.
Sure it's steel? More commonly it's aluminum. Check it with a magnet.
Steel is next to impossible to find, aluminum is still avalible but still hard to find.
Much easyer to remove it and go back with vinly siding instead. Just find one that matches.
