When you use the console and type showracemenu you can change race, but when you do that it resets your stats. Is there any other way to change race without having your stats reset.

player.ChangeRace "RaceName"

That should work in the console for what you want, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't mess the skills up like the ShowRaceMenu. You will get the new Race's passive traits too.

As always its a good idea to make a backup save before messing with the console just in case though.

My mistake, it is actually:

player.SetRace "RaceName"

what do you mean exactly when you say it resets your stats? Because ive used showracemenu and I didnt notice my levels were reset or skills points ive placed being reset.

How does this work?

Does your characters appearance attributes just transfer over?

I guess. I went from a male wood elf to a female nord and didnt notice any significant changes.
