Change user ID advice please

Hello
My users are winjing at me. I can't seem to find it anywhere and I suspect I am just being dim. They need to change there user ID names but unless I manually create another user and merge it which seems laborious I can't seem to do it. Perhaps I can't see the wood for the trees?. In PHPBB you could just change your name and that was it. Have I missed something?

Do you want to change the Username, or the Userid?

Userid can not be changed.
Username can be changed from AdminCP -> Users -> Edit User.

If you want to allow your members to change their own usernames, check my profile for the Username Manegement modification.

Go to the vB ACP -> Users -> Search for Users, do an exact match search on the current user name, and then change the user name in the resulting page, or go to /forum/admincp/user.php?do=edit&u=X where X is the user ID and change the user name.

Do you want them to change their name, or add a Display Name?

I would like the users to be able to change their login names thus:

Typical thread

Easton and Zion to merge?
The Helmet

So The Helmet (login name) wants to change his name to something else as a user.
