Not very intuitive... yes! This area is used only by administrators: these are "advanced users".

Hehehe, that of course is very true !!

Also, I assume that if I delete the unnecessary account, all the PM's and profile information will be lost. Is that correct? Profile information is unimportant, and can easily be re-entered. But PM's cannot be preserved in any simply way. Maybe it's possible to reattribute PM's too?
About this... Private messagues are PRIVATE. I can not attribute to another account. Sorry.
Systen administrator can access to database and do this manually.

This is not working for me but maybe i misunderstand what it should do ?

I have username "oldguy" with a few posts but need to rename (not just displayed name) them to "newguy" and reattribute all of oldguy's posts to newguy (essentially a name change) but i have 2 problems:

1. Reassign posts made by registered member/s to another member checkbox is "greyed out" and even if i fiddle it by typing x and 0 in 2 fields above it then i can now tick the checkbox (and later remove x and 0)

2. It doesn't work either way and i have no errors, it says that it worked but all of oldguy's posts are still there and newguy's are empty.

any idea where i am going wrong ?

Why not just change their username.  In Modify Profile > Account Settings.  Directly under where it says Username there's a link that says change.  It will show you a warning, "To change this member's username, the forum must also reset their password, which will be emailed to the member with their new username."

Yes, in your case is best renaming the user.

About your question (reattribute all posts from user oldguy to user newguy), you must fill these fields:
- Attribute guest posts made with: (*) Username of [oldguy]
- Attribute posts based on time: Date [1980-01-01] (You want reattribute all posts, I suppose this date is enought low!)
- Attribute registered member post: [X] (before check this you must enter a date)
- Attribute posts to member: [newguy]
