As for that brake pad being metallic or not, show a photo of the friction material after it has been cleaned. Also, clean new pads and the discs prior to installing new pads.

As for swapping to Shimano discs, myself I would test the current setup after giving it some care, then if you decide more is needed, then swap discs. Possibly even swap to other calipers some are suggesting.

Regarding your current cables, change them anyway. Start fresh since cable do get stressed and can have issues not easily seen unless the ends are removed or more. With new cables, and everything cleaned and adjusted correctly, you will know if at peak performance the brakes meet your needs. If not, then make big changes.
