Can I remove songs from somebody else’s playlist that was already set up on Spotify?

No, you cannot. The option to remove songs from others’ playlists, including artist-curated playlists, is non-existent.

What you can do, however, is create a new playlist using all of the songs from that pre-existing playlist, and then remove the songs from the new playlist.
