It's probably a SAPI voice engine. Please read the manual for your player,
and learn how to configure the Rockbox Utility for this SAPI voice engine.

All these feature that are unusable for you take a tiny amount of storage
space, in comparison with your player's internal storage. You won't get
anything from removing them.

When I plug the player into my computer or on a AC charger there is no

Yes. There player is unusable while connected, besides USB Keypad Mode
(refer to manual).

No. There are no menus shown while the player is connected. If it is
connected in charging mode (refer to the manual) you should use it normally.

I think that the answer is no. You can refer to the (very long) mailing list
