I have a 2000 F250 with Powerstroke and my buddy has a 02 with same engine. Both of us have had the same problem. There are two coils (look like starter coils) on top of the engine that can be seen from the passenger side of the truck. The shorter of the two, has to do with supplying voltage to the glow plugs. When this coil gets older, it breaks down causing a higher resistance in the circuit. Which reduces the volts that the glow plugs see. In turn resembles a problem with the plugs. My buddy and I changed the coils and both trucks start like new. The part cost $80-$90. and can be changed in less than 5 minutes. Glow plugs are a lot bigger job and more expensive.

You may have a CTS (Coolant Temperature Sensor) problem. If the coolant level is low the CTS could be sending a false signal to the ECM or the CTS may be faulty. The CTS must be in coolant to provide an accurate signal to the ECM and if the coolant level is low then the ECM thinks the engine is cold and therefore provides a rich air/fuel mixture. This, in turn could be the cause hard start (evident by black smoke from the exhaust), and could be the reason the vehicle failed the emission test.
