1. How do I restore my bookmarks from IE into firefox I didn't do this after I re-loaded Windows.

2. How do I change my C:\Documents and Settings Name?

In Firefox, there is an option in the File menu to "Import" which will import the Internet Explorer "Favorites".

Alternatively, use the option in Internet Explorer's menus, "File > Import & Export" to export the Favorites, which will create a "Bookmark.htm" file.
In Firefox, click the Bookmarks menu and select "Organize Bookmarks". With that page open, select the "File > Import" menu and you will now have the option to import a file. Navigate to where you saved the Bookmark.htm file and import it.

Create a new account with the name you want, transfer all the personal files you want to retain from the existing to the new account and then delete the old account.
