    Tried it, you can't.
    Create a new account
    Be like a duck. Remain calm on the surface and paddle like crazy underneath.

    Can't, but if he creates a new account on the same PS4 he can still play them

    And then the other thing is hes got his PSN plus on the account that he needs changed. He can also transfer the Plus to a new user?

    Why does he desperately need a new username?

    Cant transfer anything.

    But you can run the alongside each other and the other accounts can use all the features.

    Except cloud saves. Those only work on the owner user.

    PSN...fail.
