The SE ROM is faaaairly vanilla-y (try different launcher, lockscreen). You can remove apps from the ROM if you root.

Yea the SE Skin doesn't really interfere with the device as much as other skins do (HTC Sense, MotoBlur etc.) If it's just branded crap you want to get rid of, I'd reccomend just rooting and then using something like Titanium Backup to remove whatever you don't want on there.
