You can rename the filenames of wiki pages, and the page will exists
with its new name in your wiki. To change the internal name (inside
the file) is not so important. PmWiki will sort this out when the page
gets edited at some point.
Link references inside the page will only work if either the pagename
is full: Group plus Name, or you have not moved th epage into a
differnet group , i.e. changed the Group part of the name.
In your example changing all internal references from Page1 to Page2
will also change references to pages in other groups with name Page1,
since now the links will point to Group.Page2 instead. So that may not
be what you desired.
