If the switch is not longer used and all connectivity are disconnected , then you need just to disconnect the Switch - ISL from other Switches in the Fabric..
the second option you get a risk to remove the entire config in the fabric.
-->>2. remove the alias and zoned for removed switch.

I've removed/dismiss in the past lot of switch from productive fabric, without any impact.
as mentioned, if the switch you want to remove is not longer productive and not set as principal switch, you can safely remove from the fabric.
-->>do i need to disable the switch before removing ?
But if you want to make sure the fabric is continued to work, can do follow:
Disable "portcfgpersistentdisable" the Port is ISL's to other switch in the Fabric, and check if all is work.
