No do not delete any of those files. You need to let us know what baseband your device is on and we'll start from there.

Internal storage wiping
When I want to start completely fresh, I wipe the internal storage via TWRP before I flash a ROM.

It is located in TWRP under advanced wipe.

I would not suggest doing it using Windows Explorer.

I think you can wipe it all. AFAIK the rom you flash will populate the internal with what it needs.

I would, to be, safe, back up internal to your pc before formatting it--
