Can I change my in-game name without losing all of my XP, gold and credits etc.?  If so, how do I do that?

I'm not sure how, but if you can change your name, im pretty sure you wont lose your stuff. Dont take my word for it though.

2500 gold for a name change.

 

Do it through your account details. Top rh corner of the forum page.

 

And nothing is lost.

It is described in the following Support knowledge article https://asia.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wot/article/21670/ but the Name Change option is missing from the Account Management page, so I have requested WG to rectify that.

Or you can just ask some players to report you in game for an offensive nickname and you get it for free!

OK, update is you can still change your name from the Account Management page

 

 

Click on the mark highlighted above in the red box, enter your credentials again, and it will take you to the Change Username page.  Click on the payment option (2500 gold or 2500 doubloons) after you have entered your new name.

Paying 2500 gold for a name change is a bit off in my opinion, would just live with the old one if I was you

A new clan used to cost 2500 gold - now 1 million credits - maybe it's time to change the new IGN price to match?

1 mil credits I could live with. At lease you do not pay real money for it.

Wonder what the stats are for name changes?

 

At a reasonable price it would be something everyone would consider, at 2500 gold I reckon not many would bother.
