How can I delete layers within a hosted feature service?

I have a Web Feature Layer that is made up of 9 different layers.  I would like to delete 3 of those.  Can I do this without deleting the entire service?  If not, what are my options if I don't want to recreate the web map and web app that reference this service?  I am guessing that I could remove the 3 layers I want from the feature service, then save it under a different name, but then how can I change the data source of my web map to reference this new service?  If this can;t be done either then what?  I have arcgis pro so if my only option is to republish, can someone give me some guidance on how to export the feature service back to arcgis pro so that all the changes i made in arcgis online are carried over?

In the future I plan to publish web layers separately to avoid this issue.
