Hello;)
Is there a way to move sites between partitions WITHOUT having the symlink left there?
I have a second hard drive that I wanted to have for backup only but it was mounted as /home2 and not about 1/3 of my sites are on it. I wanted to move them back to /home but don't want the symlink left in /home2 as I would like to mount the second drive as /backup

You shouldn't need the symlink at all if you've done this correctly. cPanel will recognize additional drives, and you should be using the rearrange accounts UI to facilitate the moving of accounts.

You can configure WHM & cPanel place new accounts in a specific location and add an additional location. This is normally /home and anything containing home (so /home2 would also match). This is discussed here: Basic WebHost Manager® Setup | cPanel & WHM Documentation
