Automating Workflow With Python

I am new to python scripting and want to script this workflow:

  1.      Join a table with a polygon layer
  2.      Export joined polygon layer as new layer
  3.      Remove join from original polygon layer
  4.      Customize a map layout that has two data frames - that changes depending on table joined at the beginning (includes a title, legend, and custom layer symbology).
  5.      Export as PDF


I have basic knowledge of python and have figured out the 1st and 2nd step but I am really confused how to remove the join from the beginning. Any scripting tips would really help!
