I was wondering. with my PC that I happily don't own anymore , I could take a key off and then push the key back down to place, it would click back in. Are Mac keys designed to be removable or no? like if I sayy wanted to clean under the key, maybe get a crumb or something, how would I do that?

Yes, you can. They are VERY delicate and have these small plastic "prongs" that can break easily. So I wouldn't recommend taking them off unless absolutely necessary.
The safest/easiest way to clean between the keys is with a can of compressed air.

Compressed air I think. Also, you can buy a tool specifically for removing keys.
