I'm taking over a site that someone else built and the whole thing is a mess. If I was to completely clear out the public_html folder, would the standard or stock files (for example, cgi-bin) be restored automatically? I know GoDaddy and other web host have that option to restore those kinds of files, but I'm not seeing it on the cPanel.

The cgi-bin would not be restored automatically. While you can re-create that directory, I would advise against deleting that specific directory.
