The psn account name can't be changed, but the user name on the ps3 can. To change the ps3 user name go to the name when you are logged in and press triangle. Then pick the name area and you can then change it.

Yes, Jpeg6 is right. On the XMB, go to the far left and highlight your user name. Then press triangle. After this, a little pop-up menu should appear. On this menu go to, highlight, and select "information." Finally, highlight your name and select it. From here, you will be able to change your name. But I don't think your online account name can be changed unless you create a whole new account.

No, sorry. I wanted to do the same thing as you but found out you would have to start a new profile and it would be empty.
