    Yes you can, but you have to do this manually inside the MySQL database and update all the threads and posts and private msgs etc etc etc that are linked to these userid's. You have to update the caches etc too and all this is not recommended and not supported. Make a backup first.

    No, you can not. vBulletin has no default feature that allows this. Users just have to accept the userid has changed. It has changed to avoid that they overwrite existing userid numbers in other tables and fields.
