Welcome to our side of the world Mr. Paris.  You correct in your
assumption that MF PTFs are different.  As the microcode is considered
part of the machine you must get PTFs for it from your hardware
maintenance provider.  At least in the past IBM would still send them
on tape even if you were not a maintenance customer but not via ECS. 
Bad news for you is that tape is a bit slower!
