Default exhaust clamps

Couple quick questions. I have been thinking of replace the stock muffler and deleteing the resonator. Since the 4.7 doesn't have MDS I've come to the conclusion I don't need to worry much about drone.

I've noticed that the muffler appears to be clamped. If I want to try to do this myself, are these clamps removable/reusuable, or do they need to be cut? Also It's an easy swap only if the replacement muffler is the same length as the sock muffler correct. Otherwise what do you do?

Also the resonator is welded. Does this mean that to delete the resonator I need to take it to a shop to get a short peice of pipe welded instead? Not that I want to cobble together a ton of clamped bits, but are there any do it yourself solutions?

Since I'm researching a new project it's time to appeal to the experts once again.
