Note that TortoiseSVN does not require Subversion installed, it uses
built-in Subversion libraries.
But you still need it if you want to run a server on the same machine or
you want to use the command line client.

It depends. How do you use your repository? Do you have it set up
through WebDAV (Apache) using http:// or do you use svnserve with svn://
or svn+ssh:// or do you just use file:///?

You can't delete a repository from client site for the obvious reason.

But right, you have to delete the directory containing the repository on
the server if you use http:// or svn:// or svn+ssh://. Maybe you also
want to stop Apache or svnserve, too, if you don't need them anymore.
If you use file:/// just delete the directory to loose everything.

Your working copies can be deleted at any time.
