    What I want to do is change my blog from http://blog.example.net to http://www.newexample.org.

    I know that the Codex says that to change the URL I should find and replace the old value with the new (http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL), but won't making the change in the WordPress settings (WordPress address & Blog address) do the same thing?

    Not really.
    What you want is moving from domain A's subdomain to another domain. You need to phisically MOVE all your installation, not only to change those values.
    Don't play with those two URL values, especially if you don't understand them. What you need is Moving_WordPress.
