can you "cook out" the fat from stuff like ground beef, lets say you cook it and pour off the fat...what type of fat content is left, also can you cook something at such a high heat that it breaks the fat down and destroies its structure which would result in it melting away from the food

You can NOT cook off fat. Yes you can drain ground beef, rinse it, or pat it with a paper towel to reduce the fat. How much I don't know. The only way to know would be to measure how much fat you took off.
