Want to remove the FID128 from switchname (ex:DC04_SW1:FID128:admin> ). Also wanted to know removing this FID128 from switchname it will affect my switch?

128 is the default FID = Fabric ID.
You can change the FID under certain condition, but FID is mandatory.
keep in mind change FID in a aroductive environments is disruptive.
what is the reason you want to "remove" ?

as mention in my post today, in certain condition you can remove / disable VF, if no Virtual Fabric are configured
please have a look in FOS Admin Guide for details and do that with caution, otherwise you get a risk to delete the config.
If a config is active in VF, I believe you can move it to basic logical switch and then remove the VF, but honestly I'm not experienced how to do that.
In such case, I would suggest you open a call with Brocade.

Provided that VF is enabled, FID reference will appear in the prompt. As TechHelp24 mentioned the only way to make it disappear is to disable VF in the switch. This is a disruptive operation since the switch has to be rebooted.

The prompt is the same as the PS1 environment variable in bash. It is made up via the login procedure. Even if you modify it, it is very likely that the next FOS upgrade will overwrite all your settings. Waste of time.
Why do you want to do this anyway? There is no security implication related to a FID in a prompt.
This is the snippet of the code that manages the prompt:
