I have different admin usernames for different tasks, and each admin account is locked down to a specific purpose. For me it goes as follows
Username - What they are for
DCon - Domain Controller Admin (Only I have the PW for this)
PAdm - Proxy Admin (Assigning proxies to the user groups etc)
IAdm - ISA Admin (Sort out firewalls etc)
FAdm - Filter Admin (Add new websites to the filter, as well as email addresses to the spam filter etc)
UAdm - User details Admin (Reset PWs, assign shared drives etc)
EAdm - Email Admin (Reset Email PWs, create new accounts)
GAdm - Group Policy Admin (Create test GPO's, apply GPO's, fix any GPO's etc)
Each admin account is set up to do those specific tasks, and my staff below me have local user admin rights on each PC.
This way I can track what account does what and from which PC, so if something goes wrong, I know what to fix, and who to go to if/when things go wrong!

back to the original question, you can create a upn, which is basically the @xxx.com suffix to be anything so if even if your domain is zxy.local you can use zxy.com

Bad move! - I've done this before and all sorts of problems occured - sometimes weeks after. as some apps that you installed a long time ago and couldn't be bothered to create a new dedicated username for no longer work as they use saved credentials. I had this with Sophos for example, or services failing to start...

Yeah its the kind of thing you ideally want to do when you set up the domain. Ours is currently set to a random name which I dont like but for the same reasons I cant change it. Though tbf I've got most things using their own service accounts these days

If you set it up from the start, there is no issue! Just make sure you dont edit things after!
If you have the facility too, add the accounts now and start using them, and use the old credentials for legacy purposes until you do a new build / new image
