Is “untuk” necessary here ?

Yes it is necessary. Even tho people could still understand what it means without the "untuk", it's just not very correct. It's like when you remove the "to" in that English sentence.

Why 'memotong' and not 'memotongkan'?

I understand that me-kan is used for verbs with objects.
