You do not remove a number. Why would you want to?
If multiple people are using the same iMessage account on multiple devices they simply need to stop. There is no reason for two or more people to use the same Apple ID for iMessage.

My sister is getting all my text messages because my number is on her apple ID but I have my own apple ID. I don't even use hers. I need to erase me number from her apple ID

She needs to deactivate iMessage on her device, then re-activate and it will pick up her number.
Verify that in iMessage the two devices are not using the same Apple ID, I suspect they are.

I deactivated her iMessage but then when I signed back into her apple ID my number appeared on it once again. Now for an email, I can click out it & remove it. But I can't do that with the number. My number and hers appear in the screen.

Deactivate iMessage on both devices.
Sounds like iMessage for your ID was initially activated on her device.
Then sign in with the correct ID on your device and activate iMessage, it should like to your number. If it does, repeat with her ID on her device and confirm everything is as desired.
