const
    array = [{ taxonomy: 'category', id: [ 10, 100 ] }, { taxonomy: 'post_tag', id: [ 20 ] }];
    object = { taxonomy: 'category', id: 30 },
    item = array.find(({ taxonomy }) => object.taxonomy === taxonomy);

if (item) {
    item.id.push(object.id);
} else {
    array.push(Object.assign({}, object, { id: [object.id] }));
}

console.log(array);

   // remove the last insert
   // find item with taxonomy and id
   item = array.find(({ taxonomy, id }) => object.taxonomy === taxonomy && id.includes(object.id));

// remove from id by using the index
if (item) item.id.splice(item.id.indexOf(object.id), 1);

console.log(array);
