    Easier way is to get Titanium Backup. With the paid version you can just "freeze" apps so they don't run without actually deleting anything (therefore eliminating the risk of messing with the wrong thing and/or allowing you to change your mind later on). It's also immensely helpful to back up your apps in between ROMs so that you can get up and running after a wipe in no time at all.

    I do all of my backups in recovery, not ROM Manager. Titanium should be used to back up apps (you can run a batch command and back them all up in one fell swoop) only- backing up apps + data has been shown to cause some problems for a small number of users. Titanium Backup Pro is well worth the money- it's the most useful app I have, by far.

    ROM Manager is based off of ClockworkMod Recovery (made by the same dev, but RM is meant to automate the steps a bit). It's a good idea to learn how to do everything directly in recovery though in case you run into a problem and can't load RM.

    Is there any way at all to remove/freeze the "stock" apps without rooting my phone?

    Unfortunately, there is not. Rooting is the only way to deal with pre-installed apps.
