My web team is in the process of decomission one of our older Sharepoint 2010 sites and believe they can do this by just stopping the sites services using IIS. I have read though the best way to do this is by removing the site through Sharepoint which automatically remove the IIS an DB's..

Is it possible to disable a site and not remove it just in case there were problems?

You can stop the site is IIS as your colleagues suggest. You can also stop or even detach the Content DB in SQL Server.

This is all reversible.
