Default Bunch of questions- hope i can find some answers

Finally rooted but i need to know about a few things.

1.Can i safely remove:

SRSSetting
Sdcardchameleon (what is this?)
GestureTouchinjectionservice
Wiperapp (what is this)
Google+
Google play books
Google play magazines
Google play movies and tv
Google play music
Hangouts
Sprintpermissions 1.0

2.In my data usage i found these numbers sending or collecting varying small amounts of data (less than 1mb) as though they are programs. What are they?

10027; 13512; 10104; 16496; 13810; 17680; 10066; 10445; 15817; 17352; 19381

3.My 4g data speeds and 3g speeds max out at almost the same number- around 1.6mb/sec; on rare occasions 4g breaks 2mb at full bars. Is this normal, and can i fix this now that I'm rooted?

4. Every once in a while, my phone will start downloading by itself, notifying me it's "downloading default configuration" and returns my home screen to stock and replaces all stock bloatware. Has anyone else experienced this? I deleted MobileId and BoostZone, does that take care of this issue?

Thanks in advance for any help, it's appreciated.

You can get rid of all the google stuff thats fine. Hangouts is like a google social media thing to converse with friends.

You wanna keep the chameleon cuz i heard some things about things not working right idk. Im not entirely sure but i think it has something to do with wifi only apps.

Keep the wiper app. I think thats what caused me to go in bootloop a while back.

Srs settings is a sound enhancer and i like it.

Im not sure about deleting gestureinjection

And im not sure about sprint permissions. Might be time settings? Or something to do with the radio. Leave it for now

The numbers you talk about do cause data. Some track how much data that you use and others are just from game apps that open up permissions for like ads. I usually just restrict their background data for both phone data and wifi

Edit: and no i never had all the bloatware redownload for me thats wierd. Maybe you deleted something important. Root app delete is a very good app for finding out what you can or cant get rid of

I can answer about the apps listed in #1, but that's about it.
Safe
SRSSetting
Sound enhancement stuff
Sdcardchameleon (what is this?)
This is not the same as the ChameleonProvider.apk (which is important). sdcardchameleon.apk is a ZTE app that can be removed. I'm not really sure what it does.
GestureTouchinjectionservice
According to Spz0, It's used in the default messaging app, if it was enabled. It's not by default, at least on the awe. Used for making gestures for quick text entry. I'm sure it's also just a gesture library-framework-thing.
Google stuff / Hangouts

Not Safe
Wiperapp (what is this)
It's used for GPS.
Sprintpermissions 1.0
This might be safe, I'm not exactly sure what it does. I assume it's needed by the sprint apk's

sdcard chameleon might very well be the thing that switches between internal and external sd for default storage when sd is inserted, you ever noticed that popup message it gives you about that? might wanna run some tests but that would be my best guess

and if that is the case, can you remove it... yes, would you want to? i know i wouldnt, its kinda handy

Update-

So thanks for all the help so far, using Titanium backup i got rid of alot of garbage... something i got rid of bumped my average download/upload speeds by about double instantly-however, i can no longer download from the Google play store, which i think is due to an accidental delete of google.uploader, lol. Can anybody help with this?

Not that one. I was deleting one of the Google apps (play, magazines, i dunno) that i don't bother to backup because i hate them, and in my hurry i got Google uploader... which I'm still not sure is the culprit of keeping me from downloading from the play store, though it seems most likely.

So in the end, i just did a system restore through cwm and debloated from scratch, and since I've been messing with my background data usage permissions again, it's looking more like something there may have been what kept me from downloading from the play store

Junkie, btw, i would have been SOL without YOUR cwm, so thank you and everyone else for the help

Edit: in case anyone was wondering and for future reference, i flashed Junkie's cwm with nandroid manager. I couldn't get the terminal install to work- kept telling me there was no such file. I probably just entered the commands wrong. I put the warplte_cwm.image file on the root of my sd card, used nandroid to browse my files and flashed it from there.
