To get the database back up and running:  Copy off some of the older ones to a different disk.  Back them up later.

Yes.  Removal of them after appropriate backups is common.

>>How we will the backup of archive logs

That depends on how you back up your database and what backup strategies you have in place.

You typically want individual files on multiple tapes in case one tape snaps.

The easiest way to remove them is if you use Oracle's RMAN utility to back up your database and your archived redo logs.  You can then configure RMAN to automatically remove the archived redo logs after they have been backed up once (or twice, or whatever number you are comfortable with).

If you use some other tool to backup your Oracle database and archived redo log files, you may be able to add a command in that tool (or in a script that calls that tool) to remove archived redo logs that are older than a certain time frame (like maybe a day or two or three).

How are you backing up your database now?  It's possible you don't need to use RMAN.

RMAN isn't all that simple to set up.  There is no one set of commands.

Every company/database has different requirements on its disaster recovery.  Most of the time it is bound by policy.  When a policy doesn't exist, it is bound by acceptable risk of data loss.

We cannot provide the 'exact' commands to properly back up your database because we do not know your exact requirements.

Your DBA should already know the disaster recovery/backup requirements.  If they don't, your system security folks or those that make the policies should.

If you don't have any policy, I would strongly encourage you to hire a local Oracle consultant that specializes in disaster recovery to come in and assess your systems and requirements.

Backups are the #1 thing you DO NOT EVER want to be WRONG!!!!!!
