SQL Server only requires IIS if you are installing the Reporting Services functionality as well. If you don't plan on using Reporting Services, then I would remove that feature from for SQL Server installation. Then you can remove IIS.
To remove IIS, it varies depending on Operating System. It's a system component, so in Windows 7 it would be Control Panel, Programs and Features, then on the side "Turn Windows Features on or off", and uncheck IIS.
To change the port, open a Run dialog and type "inetmgr", right click "Default Web Site" under Sites, and select "Edit Bindings". Select the "http" binding, click "Edit", and change the port. Or, you can removing the binding entirely. Going one step further, you can remove the Default Web Site all together.
