You can remove something from OSM but then it is removed for all people looking at the map. If you remove data that is correct, that would be called vandalism. If you want to display a map without POI names, then you need to run a server that generates the map (a "renderer") and instruct the renderer not to display POIs. You cannot use the public OpenStreetMap server because that does not allow you to switch off the POI names.

Correct, you can't/shouldn't remove it from the main OSM database just for your specific purpose.

and for completeness, if you want to "run a server that generates the map" you can find instructions at . The map style that uses is from . Even if the language of the style is new to you, it's not that difficult to work out what things like do. You may also find useful.
