Remove windows display language from prefered languages list/ from keyboards list (Windows 10)

My language setup is like this:
Windows display language:
English (United States)
Preferred languages:
English (United States)
Hebrew
Korean

But, the Korean keyboard has two states - Korean & English
This is actually quite handy, since using Alt+Shift to rotate between three languages is not particularly natural.
So, I would like to simply use Alt+Shift to swap between Korean and Hebrew (and then inside Korean, Right Alt swaps between English and Korean)
That being said, I also want to keep my display language.

Is there a way to do this? I've tried removing English-US (409) from multiple places in the registry, it always comes back after a restart.
On a related note - is there a simple way to detect / change the current input language programmatically? I've tried all sorts of scripts (usually in AHK) and nothing seems to be reliable.

This is irrelevant, the whole problem starts from the "remove" button being grayed out on english-US (probably more generally on the display language).
Sorry if I was somewhat unclear XD
