iCloud: switch backup off deletes data; notes

By razorsailor ·
Hello!
I have got an iPhone XS (iOS 13.5.1) and use also the icloud.
I have, for example, notes from my iPhone uploaded to iCloud. Now my questions are:
1) Is it possible to delete the data on one side, in iCloud or on my iPhone, so that the other side is not effected? I just want to have the data on one side? DO I have to switch backup OFF for that?
2) I go to "Settings > [My NAME (Apple-ID, iCloud...)] > iCloud" and want to switch off the Notes backup. If I click on it my iPhones tells me this warning (translated from German):

Deactivate Notes
Are you sure to continue? All iCloud notes will be removed/(deleted) from your iPhone.
[REMOVE/(DELETE) FROM IPHONE] (This is the button below the text)

3) How is it possible to edit and or delete several files in my iCloud, e.g. notes. I have not found any function for this.

Thank you!
