Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

You cannot change your region, sorry.

If I'm reading your reply correctly (it's a bit difficult), you will still be able to play BluRay movies as these are not usually region-locked.

 

The only issue you will have is buying new games in the US. You WILL be able to play them - no problem - but any DLC you attempt to buy will be for your original region, and will not work with the US games.

You therefore have five options:

1) Buy the games via Amazon (or similar) from your original country and get them shipped to you. DLC will then match the game region;

2) Create a US account. You will then be able to buy from the US Store. DLC will work on US games (but ONLY US games);

3) Bring the games with you and don't buy any new games to use on your original account;

4) Er...;

5) That's it.
