Leaving them open is really easy turning, but to be safe, you should put some sort of filters on the lines.

Cut the pressure line that leaves the pump right at where it passes the reservoir. Loop that into the return line that enters the reservoir. That way you do not need to get underneath the car in order to loop the lines at the rack.

Just lift the front of the car up and trun the wheel to bleed any air out , the loop the together.

You could just undo the lines at the rack and let all the fluid out. Heard of some doing it this way and never had any problems.

I'd keep the fluid in if you are ever planning to go back to power assist.

If you cut the feed line just right, you can just connect the return line to it withouot adding any hose.

As for bleeding, just stick a funnel that's small enough to fit in the ends of the lines. Fill with ATF. Crank the wheel back and forth until the air bubbles stop.
