Office 365 usage and licences - how do they really work?

Apologies for some horribly obvious questions:

1. On a Microsoft network using roaming profiles. If I install Office 365 (Word, Excel etc) on a workstation can everyone use those components providing they have a Premium account. And will they need to activate their version of Office each time they roam to a different computer. And how does this effect their 5 machine install count.

2. If I have installed Office 365 on a portable and want to remove the Word/Excel bundle so I can use it on a different computer what is the procedure?

1) For such setups, you can use the Shared computer activation mode: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Overview-of-shared-computer-activation-for-Office-365-ProPlus-836f882c-8ff6-4f19-8b24-0212e0111c94

Not sure what you mean by the second one. You can "deactivate" PCs from the O365 portal, so they dont count against the 5 PCs limit.
