I don't think there is. You can change your displayed name, but there is nothing wrong with your present displayed name.

The Sheriffs can change your login ID if they are requested to, and if the requested login ID is not in use.

Note that the login ID is only used for logging into the system. It is not used anywhere else in our system, and nobody gets to see it. So normally there is no reason to change it.

If you really want to get your login ID changed, send me a PM with the login ID you would prefer to have, and I will change it.

Yes. Click on the "Logout" link which is near the top of the page. Then you will be able to log in using a different user ID.
I agree. Here's the link:
