I don't understand your question and I don't see how it goes with the title of your question which is about workitem templates.

Can you rephrase your question?  Do you have a custome workitem called 'Tracker'? Do you just want to know if you can detele workitems?

RTC has a way of creating workitem templates which gives you a way to associate multiple workitems into one template. If you select to create workitem from template, it replicates the whole list of workitems. I could create a workitem template, but If i want to update that template for addition of 2 more workitems, it does not give any option to edit. It only shows option of delete template and add new template. Is there any way, we can edit workitem template ?

Adding a new template is the only way I know of to make changes to a workitem template.

there is an unsupported way.

the template is stored as an xml  file in the process area attachments.  you can download the xml (from eclipse),  edit it to add/remove workitems, then upload it to the attachments, replacing the one that is there.

otherwise u have to recreate the template over again
there is no doc, you will have to examine and learn the xml data structure
