I have the apple icloud, which I think automatically backs up my messages and photos. But when I sign into the cloud there is no option for viewing text messages. What do you know about the icloud and how it works if you delete from device?

Your messages are part of your iPhone backup. To recover anything, you need to restore your phone from that backup. If the last backup was after the messages were deleted, they won’t be in the backup. When you restore from a backup, you will lose anything since the backup.
