I want to change my domain name because my current one is too long and complicated. How can I do that?

This is correct. It is not possible to change a domain name. You must register a new one. Keep in mind that search results are linked to the domain, so if you delete the old domain, you will lose any search rankings you have built up. Best to keep both and try to give only the new one out. Over time, you would be able to eliminate the old domain.
