Is it easy to just remove the link system of the Carc ? I want to paint it because it has some loose parts on it but I wonder of it's easily removable and also easy to assemble back..

Sorry? Can you explain a bit more what you mean by the 'Link system'? Do you mean the reaction rod that goes from the bevelbox to the frame?

Two bolts. One at the front, one at the back. From memory you need to drop off the RH footrest plate to get to the front one.

Yup. The shock linkage works on the swingarm. The reaction rod simply transfers torque loads from the reactive bridge in the bevelbox to the frame.

Unless you know it has already been done I would strongly advise pulling the swingarm and shock linkage to grease their bearings as this is not done adequately at the factory and to do that you need to support the bike on the engine's sump and tie the front down so there is no weight on the rear wheel as the back end will collapse when the linkage is disconnected. You can address any issues with the torque arm at the same time.

Just to be sure If I loosen up the reaction rod (as in the picture) the bike will not collapse or something right?

No. Why would it. Use your brain. Sorry if this sounds harsh but just think about how the entire suspension and reactive drive work!

While the reactive component in the drive has a major effect on how the suspension will work while it is being used in service while static it has nothing to do with actually suspending the mass of the machine.

Look at the system. Get a mate to bounce on the seat while you're looking at the suspension linkage. You'll see the reactive rod has nothing to do with it!

Use your eyes and brain! The Dutch education system is supposed to be one of the best in Europe. Trust what you were taught about physics and your eyes! Don't just ask the fucking internet. It doesn't have the answers unless you have the ability to trust your own judgement.
