Yes, you should remove things in those directories. Their presence can interfere with some software in MacPorts that may look for files specifically in those locations, regardless of your PATH. Once you've removed things from those directories, of course, having those directories in your PATH serves no purpose so you can remove them from your PATH as well; see below:

You probably mean they keep getting added every time you make a new terminal window, probably because your terminal startup script says to do so; edit that script and remove the lines that do that. Likely files are ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile, ~/.profile...
