I know that some options that are in the sandbox might not be in production. I'll have to delete a Custom Field and a Custom Object in production org. I need to know if it's possible to do manually or if I'll have to create a deploy package.

You can definitely do this in PROD provided that the custom field(s)/object(s) are not referenced by anything that you can't change directly in PROD:

  • Apex class
  • Apex trigger

References in VF pages or other UX components will fail at runtime

If you are in the habit of doing changes in scratch org/sandboxes and then deploying to PROD, then you should stick to this best practice - especially if using version control as a source of truth.

Orgs that allow direct delete of schema elements in PROD run the risk of runtime failures or unexpected behavior
