I don't believe Ford puts receiver weight ratings in the owner's manual.
The first answer is yes, you need a W/D hitch. The weight rating of that hitch should match the tongue weight (including stuff behind the rear axle in the truck) of your trailer. No, If you purchase The Equal-I-zer won't complicate your backing. Not sure what you mean by parking, but yes you will have to unhitch including removing the W/D bars when you park.
The primary reason you need a W/D hitch is that your truck's receiver is only rated for 500lb without a W/D hitch (see chart below) . Your 500lb published hitch weight will be much more loaded.
