You can see the list of cron jobs for the root user doing this (as root):
"crontab -l"
If you want to edit the list, do:
"crontab -e"
To remove a job you can either delete that line, or you can simply add a comment sign "#" at the beginning of the line you want to skip.

My recommendation is to  not touch anything. Everything that says "cpanel" is obviously related to that. The rest I don't know, but a few look like custom scripts. You should check with the people that put them to get more info.
Removing the rkhunter script isn't advised unless you have a good reason, but since it doesn't appear above, I guess you already removed it.
Remember you usually can take a look at the scripts running to see what they do. If they are binaries, you'll usually get more info with "man" or with "--help".
