Well, it does not directly refer to IT Resource Manager, still...

1.You just can not directly remove fields from an object, you can remove them from it's views. So you need to edit the views. The same when you want to add the field that is not displayed on the form or list. For example, those you have add by following actions in second step. Basically there are two types of views - form view (as it stands for) and tree view (lists, forms, tree layouts, etc.)

2. You can add fields to object by:
a) creating specialized module, which inherits all the fields from it's parent, plus adding some from itself. Thus replacing it's ancestor.
b) you can add some (but not all field types) from user interface. Menu Path: "Administration/Customization/Database Structure/Objects"

I hope this would give you basic introduction into the subject.
