I haven't been following your posts but maybe telling us what model and year or even post a photo would get you more help.

I'd say yes to the lower row; it's the wheel well. The upper row is just a stiffener so can stay in place.

So the rivets above the rail don't need to be removed?

Correct. The shell is fine to be separated with all the bows and ribs/ stringers/ stiffeners in place.
