You just have to love this kind of answers.
He clearly said he wants to hide app icons, your suggestion will disable apps totally and he won't be able to use them.
*** no mate, no way to hide apps in stock launcher, on stock unrooted device ***
On rooted device you can hide them using Xposed modules.
Only way to hide icons you don't need in app drawer is to use another laucher.
If you want something similar to Xperia Home launcher you can use Advanced Xperia Launcher - it's quite similar to stock launcher but it has many advanced options...
