When you "root" all your doing is gaining "super user" permissions which allows you to modify system structures you wouldn't normally have access to such has the ability to over clock the processor. So yes you can root, and keep the same ROM. If you know what your doing , there is no reason to wait for the one click root, but if you are simi new i would wait. They are the same root, just the steps of the manual one are more intense.
If you manually root or one click root ( the same thing ) there are ways to un root the phone yes. Is it easy on the inspire , not sure yet.

First off you don't want to remove/delete/uninstall the bloatware as that will prevent you from getting OTA updates on your phone in the future unless you put them all back in the right place and reset the UNIX permissions correctly.
Instead you should freeze them with an app such as Titanium Backup Premium or my own app Bloat Freezer.
Freezing allows you to defrost the apps at anytime to get an OTA update or just run an app that you previously froze while completely hiding the app from your phone so it does not show up or run on its own consuming memory, cpu, and network data.
Sadly, both apps require you to be rooted, but even temp root should do just fine.
