On Macs, there is no uninstaller. Some programs have an uninstaller in the their folder.
Check to see it the apps you want to uninstall has an uninstaller.
But, you can just drag to the trash with no problems.

Some apps do have other files, usually Preference files, which you can do a Find for , or look in the Preference folder for here;

user>library>preferences

These are very small files and if left there, won't cause any problems.

Yeah, if you're uninstalling the program, move the entire folder for that program to the trash.
