There’s no need to delete them, but you can hide them from view.

You wouldn’t get any extra space anyway, the ones you can’t remove are essential for the operating system. All phones have some variation on them, but some just don’t include them as visible apps. Things like Google Play, Google webview, etc have background data that runs parts of the user interface and if you removed them your phone would start misbehaving.
They only make them visible apps so they can try to persuade you to buy add-ons like music, games, movies etc from the Store.

We have sports, newsstand, documents, talkback, to name a few which are useless to me

Yeah, but they all have background functions that are part of the operating system, without which the phone won’t update and will start to crash and glitch.
A lot of those apps are just a cosmetic front for boring operating software.
Documents, for instance, that ties in with the gallery, downloads and other file storing functions.

…Although, when they update, you can always return the new update to the factory basic version and you’ll keep the functionality but gain a bit of memory space.
Just click “uninstall” in the app manager settings and most of them should give you the option to do a factory reset of that app.

Use Google photos’ cloud storage to backup your pictures, then you can send links to Google albums to share pictures and not use any storage on your phone.
You should have 15G free space on Google Drive.
