The common name for 1&3 is Torbay Palms as they can become very large. I had one thta grew to about 4 metres before the top was killed off by the snow in 2009/10. It regrew from the base.
You will find almost impossible to remove leaves until they are completely dead. You could just cut the brown bits off if you wanted. The flower stalks can also be cut down once they have flowered
