No can do. Trophies are managed on the PSN, so they're synced with a particular profile. What game data are you talking about? If you mean DLC, then it works the same as the trophies... it's synced to a certain profile. If you mean game saves, changing your profile shouldn't change anything because saves are on the HDD of the PS3.

I think you have to copy your game saves over.

Since you can't find you game saves... log in with your old ID, and save them to a USB flash drive (like the other guys suggested). Then you can log in with your new ID, and put the saves back on your PS3. As for your trophies, you'll have to start over.

Okay, i may have misread your post, but you can share DLC. Just make a new user, go to the Sign Up For PS Network option, and then click use existing account. Log into w.e account, and then go to Account Info > Transactions > Download List, and it shows a list of DLC the user dled with that specific account. Hence DLC\Game sharing
