    Hi, @Gopan ,
    If you want to change the name of the URL, simply use the script below will work for you.

    $WebApp = SPWebApplication | where {$_.Name -match "OldWebAppName"}  
    $WebApp.Name ="NewWebAppName"  
    $WebApp.Update()  
    # This bit is just to verify it updated correctly  
    Get-SPWebApplication | where {$_.Name -match "NewWebAppName"}  
    

    And for URL, you will need to add a new DNS, configure AAM (Alternate Access Mappings) and add a new binding in IIS.

    You can follow this tutorial :https://howtodowithsharepoint.wordpress.com/2018/01/26/sharepoint-2016-how-to-implement-alternate-access-mapping/
