I have a 1998 Porsche 911. I simply want to disable / disconnect the it as straightforward as removing a fuse?

Sometimes, it depends on if the Fuse is running any other equipment.
Personally, I would find the alarm sensor and disconnect it.
This would allow you to retain the factory remote start or keyless entry (if equipped.)

'99 911 with an aftermarket radio, the alarm tends to go off randomly when it is locked when a neighbor pulls in next to it or locks their car. The dealer said the problem is the radio and it needs to be...

This is common with Porsche, VW and Audi. The radio IS part of the anti theft system and part of its ground circuitry. The best thing to do is to replace the radio with the stock unit OR, find someone with Porsche experience to which they will be able to wire it accordingly to match the factory wiring. Not everyone can do this. Is it equipped with an aftermarket alarm system too? If so, have it removed.
