Swap is only necessary if you want to hibernate. However, since 1GB of RAM is the recommended minimum for Ubuntu & you only have 512MB. I suggest you keep your swap partition, but 1GB swap partition should be enough.
That being said, you may want to check into using a swap file instead. I'm not that familiar with it, but you can find a lot of info with a web search.

Really no need to start more than one thread with the same question. :(

Use Gparted live CD to delete, recreate, resize that swap partition.
