Giving my rift to my son. Advice on switching name on profile / games

Hi, My kid is a gamer, and i'm not, so he asked if i'd give him my Oculus Rift, which i've agreed to do so. I'd like to know the best way to go-about this. I'd like to change the profile name to his rather than mine, and allow him to keep all the games i purchased. It can still keep my credit card details on file, but i'd like to secure it with a pin, which i believe i already have. So he can't go on a wild spending spree. (not that he would) 

Any tips / advice appreciated.

    You can change your email (any time) and username (I believe twice per year) but you cannot change the real name on the account. One work around is to link a Facebook account to the Oculus account as it will pull your real name from Facebook. By default you need a PIN for purchases, so just don't share your PIN number.
