Default Return stock with ota easiest way/fastest?

I have rooted my m8 but just in the case I want to return to stock focusing more on getting ota updates whats the easiest most fastest way to do this and would I have to uninstall custom recovery, root, and everything else back to original stock just to get ota updates sorry for the rookie question here?

My recommendation would be "don't bother". Whatever rolls out on OTA tends to be posted as a flashable stock rooted ROM, or custom ROM within days of the OTA, if not sooner. Going back to stock is a steps backwards, and usually an unnecessary one.

Either is fine. Most will use what they are most familiar with. I use TWRP, only because it was what I was used to on my old One X (EVITA).
