    I’m guessing after a certain amount of time with the username not being used then yes

    Q: What happens to my old online ID? Can someone else take it?

    No, your old online ID is only available to you.

    1. You cannot change the primary account name.

    It is now linked to the machine's ID.

    2. You may open secondary account under the priary account.

    3. Most Server providers do not reuse abandoned Account names. That is why you see so many accounts ending in numbers.
