What if my Apple ID is old email address. Can I change Apple ID to iCloud email address without effective info on iPhone. Don't want to loss anything.

You can change the email address without any effect on your data linked to it (i.e. purchases, iCloud, etc). As long as it's a valid email address that you can accept the validation link from, you'll be fine.

How do you change apple ID

If you go to this Apple site, you can edit any of your account details. https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/wa/directToSignIn?localang=en_ca

Once you sign in you'll see this screen.

Thanks. Went there. And there is even am option to "make Apple ID and primary email the same". But looks like you can't make ID your @icloud.com email address.
