Nick,

 

As far as I know, you can place the 5th engine on the Passenger version of the RR engine variant. You set this in the PMDG Settings (Equip?) in the FMC menus.

Carrying a Fifth pod is relatively rare these days because today's jet engines are so much more reliable than they were when the original B747 was first introduced.  We have the original restrictive ETOPs requirements to thank for much of this progress and on the B744 it is now much more likely that a 3 engine ferry operation will be carried out, if at all.  However, for this operation to be undertaken legislation requires a flight deck crew who have been trained to carry it out and the ferry flight is restricted to a minimum crew with no passengers, so when considering it commercially it is always a costly operation. 

There are no special liveries to worry about apart from the great big lump stuck underneath the wing, but there are special performance procedures which definitely concentrate the mind of every pilot - especially during the entire takeoff and until the Flaps are up and the aircraft is safely above the minimum VMCA2.  After that, apart from a reduced crosswind limit on the dead engine side and keeping the aircraft and fuel load in trim, the 3 engine ferry operation is akin to flying the MD11 or Tristar (which happily fly all night on three engines)!
