Dented oil pan, is it a problem?

That doesn't look too bad. Mine is dented worse, and it seems to be just fine.
Any EJ oil pan will bolt up, actually. Stay away from turbo pans because some of them require a different pickup, but 2.2 and 2.5 ones will work.
I've put plenty of 2.5 pans on 2.2s, and vice versa with no issues.

Cracked oil pickup would be my concern, know anyone with a scope?

Not that I know of, and with 1000 miles on it since I dented it I doubt there's a cracked pickup.

If I do want to replace it, does it require pulling the crossmember?

No. Unbolt the engine mounts and the dogbone mount on the top of the transmission. I usually unbolt the exhaust as well, but people tell me that's not necessary (maybe someone can chime in here). Then just jack the engine up. Easiest from the transmission front diff. You'll need a wobbly extension to get to the back bolts, but it is possible.
