I am running ASM with 9 maps running one at a time and experiencing horrific lag. Would it work if I deleted all of one of the maps but kept the files then just changed the map name and backup locations to run the other maps?

No, please do not. You are greatly increasing the risk of corruption and data loss. I assume you are running a private server for you and your friends, if so I recommend whitelisting your server and disabling all anti-cheat measures to greatly reduce lag.
I myself also have a large cluster of 8 vanilla servers, 1 test server and 1 modded server. The minimum amount of RAM you need to run that many simultaneous servers is 32GB. Each server scales up to 8 cores (16 threads), thus for optimal performance you would need at minimum a CPU that meets those specs.
Though, my favourite method of preventing lag is to simply turn on the servers only when needed with the most used one always running.

Ok what I did was move two to another drive with a new ASM, still lots of lag I am running win 10 with a I7 processor and 64 gig of Ram. I only run one map at a time it is running on a LAN so my wife and I can play other than admin cheats we don't use anything else. I am beginning to think of deleting all but three maps but we have built and have Dinos on all of our maps so it's a hard choice. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. My wife suffers more lag than me but we run the same PC so it makes no sense to me.

Are you running the servers on a SSD? ARK is extremely sensitive to drive I/O (the speed at which Input and Output of data can be processed). I eliminated any and all rubberbanding on my private servers with this SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB. It has absolutely insane read/write speeds of over 3GB per second. Real life write speed for me is 1,9GB per second.
