You can do it without removing the ball joints. I believe there is enough room to get the axle out with the wheel turned. Or, you can also remove the wheel hub, then the axle will slide right out with ease.

BUT can it be done by removing the wheel bearing and NOT dealing with the tie rod etc ?? Everytime I take a tie rod or ball joint I tear the rubber boot

Yes, you can remove the axle threw the hole the wheel hub goes in to.
