Tahajud etc. Its up to you if u wanna pray it or not. Both Taraweeh and Witr are not mandatory. But you should pray Taraweeh and Witr with the Imam. Because if u pray those prayers with the Imam in congregation, u will get more rewards. Prophet Muhammad pbuh used to read witrs after he finished Taraweeh. So its sunnah to pray witr after taraweeh. In the book on night prayer qiyaam : it was said to Ahmad ibn Hanbal: Do you prefer a man to pray with the people in Ramadaan or on his own?
He said: He should pray with the people. He said: And I prefer that he should pray with the imam and pray Witr with him. Abu Dawood said: I saw him Imam Ahmad — in the month of Ramadaan, praying Witr with his imam, except on one night when I did not attend.
He said: I prefer that this prayer should be offered in congregation, so as to revive the Sunnah. And Ishaaq said the same. No, u dont 'Have to' but you 'Should'.Isha Prayer + Full Taraweeh + Witr + Short Lecture
Because of the hadith i mentioned above. Salam for you. No taraweeh salat do not replace tahajjud salat because both are different. Taraweeh sunnah salat is done after isya mandory salat without witr, for 11 or 23 raka'ats including the last 3 raka'ats with 1 salam for witr.
Taraweeh salat replace the salatul layl especially during ramadan only. Shafa salat is also the sunnah salat and you can do it after or before taraweeh salat but it should be made without witr.
Witr is to be prayed with Esha prayer. It is proved in a Hadith that the Prophet said: "Whoever performs the night prayer with an Imam until the latter leaves, he is given the reward of a whole night". No doubt that Taraweeh is from the night prayers. So if one prays with Imam until the Imam finishes his prayer he will get the reward of praying the whole night.

It can be offered at any time after the Isha' prayer and before the Fajr prayer. The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallamstrongly emphasised the importance of this prayer, and he, himself, did not leave this prayer even if he was on a journey or on his mount.
Due to the very firm nature of the Prophet's emphasis some scholars have classed this prayer as wajib compulsory but, in reality, it is a strongly encouraged action of the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam.
The Witr prayer is commonly 3, 5, 7 or 9 raka'at but can also be just the single rak'ah. It is authentically related that the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallamprayed it in a number of different ways, so the worshipper can choose to pray it in any of the following ways:.

When you are praying the Taraweeh, is it necessary to pray the Witr afterwards?
This can be three, five, seven, or even nine. The most common practice is to pray three rakats for Witr and there are two ways this can be completed. The first way is to pray three rakat without sitting for tashadud in the second rakat. You can pray two rakat for Witr with tashadud and tasleem.
Then follow with one rakat again with tashadud and tasleem. It is the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad blessings and peace be upon him to pray two by two and finish Witr with one rakah so an odd numbered of rakats is completed.
