ECU just tells the car what to do, when. its the brain. it usually deals with the engine, transmission, and other passive driving things like ABS and traction control. Very useful

ECU programmer (Vipprogrammer.com) is used for reading and programming ECU content of eeprom file (or ROM memory with maps if eeprom physically not present).

Car you drive a car with the ecu removed?

No. ECU generally stands for Engine Control Unit, i.e. the brain or nerve centre for engine. Without it - no go. With that said, not all cars have an ECU. An older car with a carburetor, old-fashioned distributor and all that will run quite happily entirely without anything even remotely similar to an ECU. A Diesel car may not have an ECU etc etc.
