It is telling me to plop Maxis Manor and I have no idea how to do that? Any ideas?

Maxis Manor is Maxis Man's house. It's not required, just optional. I believe it's under the Police stuff

Yes, it's under the police tab.
I find Maxis Man to be very helpful. But I was an oil barron at this point so the -900/hour?!?! wasn't that bad?

You have to pay Maxis Man $500 for him to even go out and do anything and from what I've seen you have to do that a lot before you can do any upgrades. I was reading an article in IGN about it. He's more like a mercenary! And it's $900 to operate. I have him in one city but I think I am going to get rid of him and save the $900 and use it on actual police which seem to do a better job then him anyways.

I put MaxisMan in one city, Dr Vu in another and was watching it.
First, yes MaxisMan costs money to dispatch. But if you’ve got criminals loose, it could be worth it incrementally than having an amped up police precinct (which costs a TON per hour to run, I think 1400 or 1700, which is a big hit). The cool factor was kind of neat, and I’ve got him up to 3k Renown Points so far.
The Vu Tower, on the other hand, starts to accrue henchmen and you can release them—it’s easy if there are only a few, but one time I had run my city for a while, and then unleashed 21 at a time on my city and the police were inundated. ALSO, I followed one of them and he—along with a few others—left to go visit other cities. So be forewarned, they will migrate!
I don’t know if you can dispatch MaxisMan to another city in the region though. I don’t believe so, so other than being gimmicky, there’s arguably little value-added with this. But I’ll keep an open mind and tinker around with it some more.

Has it been stated that Maxis man and Dr Vu are 1 per region only? I know it's one per city..but what about in the whole region?

maxisman is one per city, as my mining city kept asking me to create maxis manor while i had one in my university city.

Is there anyway to disable Maxisman and Dr VU? The cartoonish feel of this part of the game does not interest me.

Just don't build their respective Headqauters i assume. Seems like a waste of money having them in your city anyway, if maxisman charges you to get of his lazy ass to do anything.
