Bathroom sink smells strongly like sewer when water runs fast.
Suppose you plugged the drain of the sink and filled the basin with water, then removed the plug. I must think that only after the basin empties you would get the sewer smell, and the smell would persist until you slowly ran some more water. If you try this, and this is the result, then the problem is that the sewer vent (that is supposed to prevent the water in the trap under the sink from being sucked down the drain) is not working right. If this is a new problem then you may be able to clear what is probably a blocked vent pipe. If this bathroom has always had this problem, then you have a poorly designed or executed vent pipe setup that you can only fix it with some surgery to your plumbing. However, to clean the vent you can try pouring a good bit of drain cleaner down the vent pipe on the roof, followed by water. But because there may be several vent pipes sharing the same vent stack out the roof, the drain cleaner may not get to your blockage and may simply go down a different path. Good luck.

How to remove handle from faucet
Most handles have a screw under removable cap on top that can be pryed off with a knive blade. Then pull up on the handle. You may have to wiggle it back and forth to loosen it first. Maybe even tap it with a hammer on the sides to break the tight fit a little. At worst you can buy a handle puller in the plumbing tools area at Home Depot.
And if there is not a top screw there are usually one or two set screws in the side of the handle. They may require a tiny screwdriver or hex wrench to loosen them.
