You have not provided enough information to show what specific hpvmremove/hpvmcreate syntax would be needed to remove and recreate this vPar. There is no information about the name of the vPar, how many CPU cores, how much memory, etc.
From what you listed, this vPar is not using any disks assigned from the VSP. It therefore must be using disks zoned directly to the WWNs of the NPIV virtual HBAs you listed. If you were to remove the vPar via "hpvmremove" it would not affect the disks. You could recreate the vPar using the same NPIV WWNs and it should be able to find its disks and boot from it again.
