I am not too happy about being forced to FB Messenger and don't want to install it since it uses so many permissions on my phone that I don't want it to use...

Those who are rooted, etc and using things like Xposed, App Setting, etc... is there anything out there I can use to block FB Messenger for having so much access to my phone?

Many don't care as it is like #1 out there but I so care...any advice fam..??

You might be able to use app ops to restrict certain access to your device. Probably the best way is to actually advance freeze (Rom toolbox) and go through and see how much you can disable before the app becomes unstable

Fwiw, I uninstalled the FB app ages ago. I just put a shortcut on my desktop to visit FB on my browser.

I use my Twitter program to natively share pics/links to FB, and you can set up FB to e-mail notifications (I don't have any) for just about anything....then you can set up a filter and subscribe to that folder for your Facebook notifs, if you wanted to go crazy.
