Given that the ES350 drive train is Toyota Camry, and the V6 Camry has none of these covers in the engine compartment, I can only assume they are cosmetic--just a differentiator for Lexus. I can't see any downside to removing them, but be sure to save them so you can reinstall them before you sell/trade the car.
Yes, those little clips that hold them in place are annoying--if you drop one, it's lost forever in the lower engine compartment. You can buy them at Lexus or Toyota dealers for about $1.25 each. One of these days I'm going to remove that lower engine compartment shield/panel just to see how much junk has accumulated there.
