To get the first word before the first space for you Postcode you can use
LEFT(u.Postcode,InStr(u.Postcode,' ')) instead of LENGTH(u.Postcode) - LOCATE(' ', REVERSE(u.Postcode)))

To remove spaces from a string, use REPLACE(str, ' ', '') to delete all spaces (or more accurately replace all spaces with empty strings).  You can use that in a SELECT, INSERT or UPDATE.  I'm not clear on where and when you want to change the strings.
