So if I'm understanding everyone correctly, a 772 is what I'm keeping an eye out for. Would the pump come with it or should I be keeping an eye out for that separately? Is there a particular pump I'd be looking for? You guys imply the pump is fairly easy to mount, I just have to mod the grill...right?

There are other loaders that will fit your tractor. The 730 and 772 are just two that I have some experience with.
I think the 770 will also fit - I think.
As for powering the hydraulics there are several ways to do that. Easiest is to simply buy a remote valve that bolts directly under your seat. That option is not real robust however as it uses the onboard hydraulic pump (located Left rear corner of the engine) and that pump; while providing enough power only produces about 4+ GPM of hydraulic flow.
The best way is by means of a seperate hydraulic pump which is run off the front of the crankshaft. I think those produce about 10+ GPM but are more complicated to learn about and install.
Lastly, as you stated, you can use a pto driven pump - which serves well but that setup makes it so you can't run anything else off your pto.
FWIW, I have had several loaders over the years but have always gotten rid of them. I get by just fine with a boom pole for lifting stuff, a rear dirt scoop for digging and hauling dirt and a back blade - all of which fit on your 3 point and are easily removeable. No, they are not as good as a loader - even all together. But a loader does make a dreadnaught out of your otherwise nimble tractor too so consider that.

A 727 would also fit - its basically the same as a 772, but older. Both of those may have mounts for a 4000, or even a 5000, rather than a 2/3000, so it still may call for some fabrication. I'll agree about a loader turning a handy, nimble tractor into a dreadnought. The solution, if the budget allows, is a modern, quick attach loader. I have a Westendorf TA26 on my 4600, and really like it. On or off in less than 5 minutes, with no tools.

You have a great loader.
Would like that type too. Probably cost more than I paid for my tractor tho.
Speaking of loaders;
I wouldn't do this combo myself but it is interesting.

I saw a 4200 with a wide front and a loader listed for sale a week ago. PTO run pump, and a gasser. I bought my loader new, something like $5500 if I remember right. Sometimes you can find a good used quick attach with the right brackets... usually 1/2 - 2/3 new price.
