    How can i set this up.. when i remove a subdomain that the directory will be removed instantly?
    Because currently i am only able to remove this manually.

    Leaving the directory is by design to help prevent mistakes I believe. You'll need to remove it manually.

    I think cPanel is designed to work like this. Removing sub-domain will delete all contents under that directory but will keep the folder :)

    Same rules applies for Addon domains also :)

    The files or subdirectories are not deleted either.
