In brief: HAH?

You kind of mixed a few things together here.
Why are you having the implant removed? Are you saying that you will have a bone graft after removal? Unless you enjoy pain I would get an anesthetic.

In brief: Yes Anesthesia

Of course your dentist will administer anesthesia before performing any procedure.
. why are you having the implant removed? Has it failed? You need to tell us more of your circumstances before we can offer any advice.

In brief: Depends

Depends on location & size.
I like to think of this type of procedure more like doing a large filling or crown prep so the level of stimulation is about the same so some patients elect to do sedation above using the normal anesthetic. Anesthetic is the norm though.

In brief: Yes

It is a surgical procedure.
Discuss anesthesia (probably local) with your surgeon.
