    You will have to change user1's ID to 999 (or some not-existant yet ID), then change user2's ID to ID=1, then change user1's (which now have ID 999) ID to ID=2.
    Example of changing ID:
    UPDATE wp_users SET ID = '999' WHERE ID = '1' ;
    That will change user1's ID from 1 to 999.
    Regards
