I 'd like to try smartparens but don't like the automatic parenthesis insertion.

Can I turn it off that feature only?
Or is it meaningless to keep the mode after I disable the feature?

smartparens isn't really designed to be used that way, but it does have some settings you can tweak. Setting (setq sp-autoinsert-pair nil) will disable auto-inserting pairs. For more auto-pair related settings see https://github.com/Fuco1/smartparens/issues/614.
