I have a stack of 5500G-EI switch. I am not experience with 3Com stacking. I need to remove two of these switches that are no longer needed. Can I just remove unit 2 and 3 or do I need to run some type of command from the CLI first?

You can remove slave switches in a stack without disrupting the rest of the stack.
To manually renumber switches in a stack using the following:

[5500-EI] change self-unit to <unit_number>

Use the following if other units in a stack are to be re-numbered:
[5500-EI] change unit-id <current_unit_number> to <new_unit_number>

Once numbering changes for a unit or units in a stack is complete, the
changes should be saved. Use the following to preserve the changes
across a reboot:
<5500-EI> fabric save-unit-id

Here's the guide to switch stacking on the 5500:
