How to get rid of the Lock Screen Ads:

Enable Developer Options
Settings>Device Options>Tap on Serial Number several times>You are now Developer

Enable USB Debugging
Setttings>Device Options>Developer Options>Enable ADB>tap on toggle>Enable
Go in to ADB on your computer and connect your Fire 2015

Fire OS 5.0.x:
Code:
adb shell
pm hide com.amazon.kindle.kso
exit
adb reboot
Fire OS 5.1.x+
Code:
adb shell
pm clear com.amazon.kindle.kso
pm hide com.amazon.kindle.kso
exit
adb reboot
It is working for me.
It seems as if there is no way to change/customize the Lock Screen Wallpaper yet.

Is it possible to remove system apps in the same way? Like the launcher and other amazon apps

Yep, but blocking/hiding the Launcher gives an error, so it seems like we need root for that. All other Amazon Apps would work, but I would expect some to give errors. Maybe you can test which Apps can be hidden/blocked.

I just registered an account just to say it works great! I had never used adb before but once I managed the installation hurdle I was able to get this to work. Thanks!
