If the emissions equipment (DPF, adBlue, etc) is not an issue, is adding the above additive to bring zinc levels up okay? I know I can get Rotella T6 or Royal Purple and have higher zinc and phosphorus and calcium levels. My situation is that I bought several bottles of 5W30 ESP oil that is DPF friendly, and I think it has zinc levels below 900.

There are anti-wear additives which will not show up on any VOA or UOA seen here. Sadly, these additives are Rarely discussed on here. There is a Youtube video floating where an Amsoil specialist answers why Mid and
low-saps oil cost more than high saps. More expensive additive(s) are required to be used in a low and mid saps oil. Low saps cost even more to make than mid saps.
