If I leave out the 'senin', how does this affect the sentence? Do we have to put a suffix behind ne in that case?

No, "senin" is optional. You don't change anything.

Senin adın ne? = Adın ne?

can't we say "adın nesin?" as we say "neredesin?" nerede + sin ne + sin

Neredesin = where are you

Nesin = what are you

Nerede = where is it

Ne = what is it

I was told that "adiniz ne?" was the normal phrase for "what is your name?"

so if I am in a class and want to say "what are your names?" shall I say "Adlarınız ne?" ? Am I getting this right? Thanks for your reply and thanks for advance :)

Now, since it seems OK to ask, "Ne yapıyorsun?" would it be wrong to say "Ne senin adın?" or even "Ne o?" or "Kim o?"

No, ne senin adin equates to "what your is name" all correct words, but wrong order. That is what we call "a dusuk cumle" improper sentense, you get the message across though
