You can freeze/disable apps in the App Manager settings menu.

However you can't remove/uninstall apps without root permission.

Some you can't even disable. Without root your just sol. Rooting is not bad and the towel root method doesn't trip knox.

Yes, but only some. You can disable almost all apps. And that is the only solution for OP, as his phone has not been rooted.
