2012 wk2 5.7l hemi cooling system hoses

I want to change out all of the hoses on my Jeep. I can't seem to find much on the heater hoses at the back of the block. I have found pictures of HPS silicone hoses that have T's and bends, but my Hemi has two rubber hoses that bend off of an aluminum tube assembly.

QUESTIONS: 1.) Can these rear hoses be removed at the clamps easily with no damage? (They look as if they could be easily removed). 2.) Why would the HPS silicone set show different looking hoses for the rear? These look as if they replace the tubes on my application. 3.) Silicone looks cool, sounds like it is a little more durable. Is it worth it? 4.) What about bleeding air in a closed system? Is it necessary?

Bottom line, I can't seem to get good info on the hose set needed for my Jeep. Rad hoses are easy, it's all the other ones I want to know about. My other Jeep with a 3.6L Pentastar is easy in this regard. Thank you.
