There will be some overhead but typically if you can get rid of substantial indexes due to non-usage it is worth it.   I have noticed a very negligible performance overhead due to index monitoring.

Yes but very minor, and worth the effort -- just don't leave it on for the indexes you want to keep.

There are special scripts to find unused indexes.

This is of course not 100% secure, because an index can be used very rarely, but it can be used.

Dropping unused indexes you speed up the DML statements - INSERT, DELETE, UPDATE, MERGE and save also disk space.
