XF 1.4 Is it possible to remove the /forums/ subfolder from URLs?

The /forums/ route can't be removed globally, but it can be changed.

The other options is to set up individual route filters for every forum URL.

I don't really follow what you mean by the "URL will not be correct". Since you're changing the URL, you can change it to what you want (subject to constraints); leaving the number will provide literally no benefit once the URL is changed.

The constraint is that you can't have certain characters before the first "/" -- generally, you should stick to a-z, 0-9 and - .
