Do a search - there are hundreds of threads about this topic.

** Use a unique password for your PSN ID - one you don't use anywhere else **
** Engage brain before putting mouth in gear ** ** two-step verification - use it **

You can't ever change a PSN ID. You can create a new user, but no trophy information carries over. 

 

I believe on the new PS4, even though it is still the same PSN ID you can create a different user name that the public can see.

Just wanted to add to what Tracer said, the 'different name' thing is only the opportunity to use your real name with social media like Facebook etc, the PSN ID you have now is the same one you'll use on the PS4, the opportunity to chamng it is not an option.
