I am in the process of growing some climbing annuals from seed

I am growing Rhodochiton, Sweet Peas and Canary Creeper.  The Canary Creeper is getting

very straggily, so I shall repot it prior to planting out.

Should I pinch out the tops of these plants and should I provide stakes in this

early stage as the Carnary Creeper is about 12 inches long.

Hello Val if there are plenty of roots I would pot it on a size and put a cane in for support

Canary creeper scrambles rather than climbs, much as it's relative the nasturtium does, so it really needs a sort of trellis-type support that it can wind its leafstems around it.
