Ford has problems with the DPFE sensors that has to do with the EGR. its just a code that points you in the direction of the problem. you could have a bad DPFE or egr or just a simple clogged hose. there should be 2 hoses on these f150s the only way to tell is by checking hoses otherwise you need more tools to check these things. a vacuum test on the DPFE sensor to see if it reacts.
the other code is an O2 sensor code. heater problem. could be different problems or a bad O2 can cause a rich condition cause low fuel mileage and also cause the EGR system to clogg over time.
I dont knwo what else to help you with because its one of those things that just needs to be looked at in person. your best bet is check the DPFE hoses. should be near EGR and look for rubber hoses connecter to a sensor. should have 2 hoses connected to it. Google a pic of one so you knwo what they look like.

you have to take it to a shop to have it reset. if it tripped, it means something isn't working right, and that often leads to lower gas mileage if it isn't fixed, costing more money in the long term

On any car 1996 or newer after a repair is made the memory in the computer has to be cleared the light will not go away by itself. The proper way to clear this is with a scanner or code reader but if you dont have any other way unhooking the battery will force the computer to loose all its memory and start all over and the light will go away. If the light returns after a few days you still have a problim.

Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.
I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.
