That url was too much to read. Basically metric modulation is when you have different time signatures alternating each measure. Say the first measure is 3/4, then the next measure is 7/8, then back to whatever.
Bands like Dream theater do this a lot. Metric modulation makes writing actual notes much easier because you dont have to break down say 3/4 common time into something that would sound like 6/8.
