Question

Your English is perfectly clear, no need to worry.

Linden Lab say you can have up to 5 accounts, which are commonly called 'alts', for alternative-accounts.  Just register again with the same details to create a new one.  You will be able to Pay L$ to your new avatar and pass-over all your transferable items.  Unfortunately there is no way to give it the non-transferable objects as well.

It is better NOT to delete your old account.  Sometimes you may want to come back to being PearlNauma :-)  Unless you have a premium account it doesn't cost you anything so keep it for a while.

To delete your account, you just need to click on the Second Life logo/icon at the top left hand side of this screen, and look through the options on the left hand side. There is one for "cancel account". Read the screen carefully, because it does tell you what you need to consider if you decide you might want to return at a later date (and believe me, many people who thought they wanted to leave Second Life for good, have returned and wanted to reactivate their account).

Remember, you can always create a brand new avatar - officially you can have up to five accounts per household. Sometimes a change is as good as a rest.

By 'nick' I assume you may be referring to the Display Name.  You can change that once each week if you like.  There is no need to cancel your account!  You may not be able to transfer over all of your inventory to another avatar anyway. 

Every avatar has a name that you choose when you first create one.  Then, you also have the option of creating a Display name that will also show over your head.  You can change this name once each week (or keep it permanently).

Here is more information on Display Names:
