Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get. What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little. I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :) Cheers

Yes you can cut them out and you will only need to re map if you alter the back pressure too much as the computer will make adjustments automatically when you remove the baffles

not sure here as never changed them i just fit a set of pipes from motor auto factor then remove them for the annual inspection which i would advise you to do but you have to be carefull here as the police will pull you up and do a roadside check if the bike sounds too noisy then they will impound the bike till a fine is paid and then it can only be released to a authorised dealer for repair ,but this is spain plus the tow truck charges on top of the fine .I bought two pipes for my 1981 kawasaki 750 for 100 euros each and welded them on but the pipes were italian made and came with a certificate of homoglonation to present when i take the bike for its annual inspection ,and from what i remember they were welded on the other end as well as i had to cut a bit off so they fitted the wider down pipe of my bike.You have to be so carefull nowdays in any country as they are politically correct and noise polution is something a local traffic cop can make his quota of nicks up to keep the boss happy .
