No, i most definitely want to use polar coordinates so i can make use of spherical symmetry.

I think I got you now! So
Thus, can i simply take the coefficients of dr^2, dtheta^2 etc from the schwarzschild spacetime interval and plug them in as the diagonal components of gmu,nu and label the columns/rows as spherical coordinates rather than cartesians?

Yes.
