Default Case CPU Duct

How important is the air duct on some cases for the processor? Some have a fan instead so what kind of a differecnce will it make?

if your cpu dosent have a fan on it then its EXTREAMLY important but if it does i suggest removing it other componets need a little fresh a air once in a while dont they!

overall ther pretty much pointless if you have a seperate cpu fan

So taking the cpu duct would help it? Or keep it the same and help other components?

It really depends on the case itself. The best thing you can do is try it with or without it, and monitor it with something like CoreTemp or Speedfan.
