Do I need to change the pellet everyday because there so much left for it and how do I clean the hulls do I just Remove it with spoon or remove the hole thing and refill it?

It's a lot easier to replace the seed every day than to try to work out if there's enough seed left for the day after removing the empty husks. If you just put enough seed in the seed bowl (1-2 teaspoons a day per budgie) each day and replace it when you take the bowls out to clean them each day. Some people prefer to split the seed ration into two meals and put half in the cage in the morning, then the other half in the afternoon. On top of seed, budgies should have access to pellets at all times as this is much healthier than seed. The pellets should go into a different food bowl, and not go in with the seed. Fresh vegetables should be offered regularly too.

So I should leave the pellet plate until it empty. And from the day I got them they never ate seed only pellet and lettuce.
And someone told me I should feed them lettuce 2 time a week or they will get diarrhea is that true?

You should clean all their food and water bowls daily to keep them clean, so try to minimise wastage by not overfilling. Lettuce can give the budgies diarrhoea if they eat too much of it, but there are plenty of other vegetables you can offer them. Most budgies seem to like corn and broccoli. If you google 'bird safe vegetables', you'll find a whole list of veggies you can try them on. You can chop up a few different types of vegetables and offer them a mixed plate.
