You can uninstall it like any other package, though I wouldn't suggest it. Bluetooth is going to be largely useless without Blueman, as KDE's built-in Bluetooth support still leaves much to be desired. If you remove Blueman, you might as well remove all of BlueZ.

Well bluedevil is fairly easy to install, plus bluez comes with bluez-simple-agent which is awesome for people who dont use desktop environments, or just dont need a gui to deal with bluetooth. Yes its entirely possible.

edit: Also in 13.1 kbluetooth which is available from is fairly decent but not capable of doing many probably much desired stuff like device pairing.
