So in total you have 467 GiB free disk space I wouldn't bother with removing sda2, as it is only 19 GiB. If you want, sure, go ahead and delete it. Afterwards you will have to increase the size of sda3, so it grows to absorb the old sda2 disk space. Then you'd have to, in order, move sda7, sda8, sda9, and sda6 down so the free disk space is moved to after sda6. I'd recommend you move down sda6 anyway, so the 303 GiB before it and the 164 GiB after it are merged. And you might want to reduce its size; swap of 4 GiB is more than enough--unless you have more RAM in your system and you want to be able to hibernate (suspend to disk), then you need to make sure swap is equal in size to your RAM.
sudo swapoff -a -v

Be aware that you can only restore a clone to a partition that is the same size or larger (never smaller).
Also you CAN restore to a different partition ( ie - sda4 to say sda 1, 2, whatever), but you have to go into the clone folder and rename wherever to the correct sda#)
