Of course you should? Cleaning up their poo is a part of keeping their cage clean. You should pick up poo and any wet spots daily to keep their cage fresh and clean.

Not necessarily, hammies often eat their poo so they get all the nutrients out of it but I generally aim to clean out his pee area every 2-3 days

you should invest in a potty. They cost like 4 to 7 bucks and they are a great asset to any cage, because the hamster will only use the litterbox and you won't have to use as much money on bedding and other things etc.

You don't have to remove it immediately, but every couple days you can take the poops out, and weekly you should completely replace the bedding and clean the cage.

You don't have to take out every single piece, but if you notice a collection of poop in one area, go ahead and throw it out.

Yup, you can clean their cage/ aquarium in a regular basis like every other day up to every week. The frequency should also depend on the status of their bins/ enclosure. I bet you can smell it and decide for your self. :)
