To do both of these things, go to Settings > PlayStation Network > Delete Account. You will then be prompted for confirmation.

Will my trophies still show after I remove my account?

Yes, as long as they are stored locally on PS Vita and have been synced with PlayStation Network at least once since being earned or obtained (and not deleted). Once removed from your PSN profile, when you view trophies for the first time on any other PS Vita/TV system or Web browser via [Trophy Collection], the trophy list will display “This Trophies belong to an account that has been terminated” until all of these trophies are selected for deletion. This only occurs if there is no other PSN account that is signed into your profile.

Please note: If you have earned trophies on a friend’s PS Vita/TV system while signed in with your PlayStation Network ID, and the device is later removed from the PSN before moving said trophies to another platform, these trophies will disappear from your trophy list and not be able to be transferred.
