The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will initially become available in the PlayStation Preview Program, which includes select users that have participated in system software betas in the past.
You will have the option to display your old ID alongside your new ID, which is interesting as it suggests that PlayStation really are putting some kind of universal identifier behind the scenes to keep your various names linked. Now, you won't be able to change your name quite yet, but rest assured that it's coming. The Nintendo Switch doesn't let you change your base Nintendo Account username, but it does make it easy (and free) to change the "nickname" that appears to other players online.
When you change your online ID, you will have the option to display your previous ID with your new ID, so your friends can recognize you. If this is an issue, you can revert back to the original name for free at any time (but just once during the preview program).

During the preview program you can revert back if the errors are so busted that you can't use programs correctly.
If you are not one of the lucky test users, you will need to wait until 2019, when a full roll out is planned for the feature.
