My reading is that steps 1 and 2 are needed to get the Gtk libraries.
The other steps aren't as you are not developing a program. If after
doing 1 & 2 (and setting the GTK_MODULES environment variable) the
message about not finding gail:gtk-bridge module then I would look for
something with a likely name and copy that into the Denemo package at
the same location (perhaps in .../bin or .../lib or .../share/gtk3.0/
or ...) and see if the message goes and if the behavior changes.

It will be the case that the "pacman" command for installing Gtk will
be accompanied by an uninstall option. Likewise the MSYS2 installer I
would expect to have an uninstall mechanism documented. And in any
case, I would further expect that the space taken up by the libraries
would be easily regained by looking below Program Files for the stuff
installed. (I'm expecting this because these are relatively large
projects which tend to be accompanied by all the frills).
