No, there is no way to change or edit your primary Yahoo email address.
But, the good news is that Yahoo allows users to add an email alias. This feature enables you to add another email to your old primary email. You can use the new alias email to send or receive emails from the primary Yahoo email account. This way, you can tell other users that you have changed your old email.
For instance, the primary Yahoo email was email@example.com, now you can create a new alias email firstname.lastname@example.org. When someone will send emails to the new email you can access those emails from the primary email box.
FYI: The alias email can be another Yahoo email or from other providers like Gmail, Outlook, etc.
