All the details are too complex for a reply here.
Do a search on www.google.com for:
pruning, pear, pruning advice, how to prune, etc.
I will say that you may be well off to prune only what you need to now, and wait until late fall.
Fruit tree often need a lot off the top. And a lot off the top in summer can mean sunburn to bark that was in the shade.
