There is no way to change the package name in the QGIS plugins
repository (plugins.qgis.org), you should create a new plugin and mark
the old one as deprecated (if you don't have the right to mark the
plugin as deprecated just ask and admin to do it) so that its clear
which should be used/downloaded.
