    You can change user name from Users tab in back end. But admin user name cannot be changed.

    You can add a nick name for admin & can select it as public display name for admin.

    If you still want to edit admin name, select your WordPress database in phpmyadmin and in "wp_users" table, change the "user_login" value for admin. But keep a whole backup before it.

    Always try to change WordPress default admin name at the time of installation. That is the perfect way.

    No, unfortunately, it's literally not possible to change your user name - no one can. You can change the display name or make a new user account.

    Can we create a new account for the same email-id ?

    So far as I know, you can only use an email on one account - but you should be able to change the email on the first one to something else and then reuse it on the new one. But I think there's a delay (a day maybe?) before you can reuse it - as things aren't instantly updated.
