What would be the result of removing or adding one proton from an atom of gold ?

The atomic number of the element would change. It would not be gold anymore. Adding 1 proton increases the atomic number by 1, etc.. The isotope of the new element formed may be radioactive. (You can check this by using a radionuclide table).
