If I remove the Roaming Profile path in Active Directory for a user, does this user no longer have a roaming profile or do I need to change ntuser.dat to ntuser.man?

Thanks,

if you change the path the new path is where the new roaming profile will be stored. no need to change ntuser

Yes just remove the path in AD and they won't have a roaming profile anymore.  
ntuser.man is for a mandatory profile, you can have those with roaming profiles but that is not always the case.
Thanks
