First of all, are there any metamers for dienes? If there are any, how can I find them?


Yes. Consider metamer to be a different word for isomer, as noted by Lighthart:

The term metamer is equivalent to isomer...As an aside, I have never heard the term metamer before, I expect it is archaic.

And, according to Dictionary.com, consider a diene to be:

a hydrocarbon that contains two carbon-to-carbon double bonds in its molecules.

There are too many diene isomers to be listed here ($\ce{C5H8}$ has many atoms), but you can begin by changing the numbers in the name to generate different Lewis structures.

This is just one structure. Try cis vs. trans, position isomers, etc. You may think of many more.
