    The horn in my TE 210 is bad and is very hissy and harsh. Can I just unplug it (internally)? Will this change the overall impedence or power handling? The horn is 8 ohm 150 watts continous if that changes anything...

    I'm guessing it will be fine (I don't know the cabinet you refer to). I recommend putting some electrical tape over the conductor that you unplug so there will be no chance of its coming into contact with something else. I don't think your idea will affect the nominal impedance or power handling.
