I just trying to get few information from a user (like if the mysite web exits) and working with that. The main problem is understand if the user has a mysite web and delete it if exists but to do that the only possible way seems using CSOM. Also I should create a Powershell script for that. Did anyone never do that?

Did you tried this yet ?

 //get userProfile...
 if (userProfile.PersonalSite != null)
         using (SPSite personalSite = userProfile.PersonalSite)
             if (System.Web.HttpContext.Current != null)
                   Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb web = (SPWeb)System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Items["HttpHandlerSPWeb"];

                   web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
                    web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;


You can do it through Central Admin as well as stated in this post How to delete a my site for a single user - SharePoint 2013 on premises

If you really want to use powershell then go through all profiles and find one for the given username and delete it ? e.g.

#Add SharePoint PowerShell SnapIn if not already added 
if ((Get-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null) { 
    Add-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell" 

$site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://skvkfm-it01/");  
$ServiceContext = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPServiceContext]::GetContext($site);  

#Get UserProfileManager from the My Site Host Site context 
$ProfileManager = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager($ServiceContext)    
$AllProfiles = $ProfileManager.GetEnumerator()  

foreach($profile in $AllProfiles)  
    $DisplayName = $profile.DisplayName  
    $AccountName = $profile[[Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PropertyConstants]::AccountName].Value  

    #Do not delete setup (admin) account from user profiles. Please enter the account name below 
    if($AccountName -ne "Domain\MySiteSVApp") 
        write-host "Profile for account ", $AccountName, " has been deleted" 

write-host "Finished."
