I personally would keep everything intact. (when feasible).
window companies go to a lot of trouble to make sure their windows
are true and tight prior to putting them in the hands of consumers.
get more people – it only takes a few minutes to get it in place.

but, yes. it “can” be done just as you described. depending on how high
they are above ground level where it is not safe while standing on ladders,
saw horses, milk crates, etc.

Absolutely, pop the panels out. put the frame in plumb, level, check squareness, tack in place, then put your windows back in, check your reveals, make any final adjustments and nail it home. Did it just last week with a bunch of second story windows.

I prefer leaving them in. It makes it easier keeping them square.

I do want to install the windows with the glass left in, but also wanted to know if I could do it with out the glass in case if it was to much of a struggle
