Am I missing something? I’ve removed all of the wording suggested, and nothing happens. I’m not familiar with how function.php files work. So far, I’ve just deleted info in my child theme’s function.php. Should I also make changes to the parent’s function.php?

Why are there any functions at all in the child#’s functions.php file? a child theme should always start with an empty function.php file – or it can lack the file completely if you do not want to customise any of the parent’s functions.

Absolutely not! That would completely negate the point of having a child theme in the first place. Starting with content.php you need to create custom copies of the post format template files (the ones with the file names content-xxx.php) and remove the code/markup that you do not want between <footer class="entry-meta"> and </footer>.
