Rule ONE: Do NOT root your phone until you would know what for you are doing this.
Obviously, you ignored this rule
There are plenty of solutions to remove or to freeze the bloatware, just to name one: Titanium Backup from Play Store.

One side advice: if you will install another ROM, if it is not rooted, your root will be gone.

As I said before, there are many way, one of which is titanium Backup, where you can FREEZE application.
It is much safer way, as if you'd screw something up, you will be able to easily return to normal by unfreezing.

you're welcome.
One final advice:
Quidquid agis, prudenter agas et respice finem... what means: use common sense, for example: if you phone is secured with PIN, no NOT freeze keyboard, otherwise you'd have serious problem with its unlocikg

Anyway: good luck and ... have fun with the toy
