// File (or directory) with old name
    File file = new File("oldname");
    // File (or directory) with new name
    File file2 = new File("newname");
    // Rename file (or directory)
    boolean success = file.renameTo(file2);
    if (!success) {
        // File was not successfully renamed

I have found this for the file, how would I get this portion of the program to read the file and write it back as a different name?
Your code work fine. You just need to specify the filename.

    File file = new File("c:/temp1.txt");
    // File (or directory) with new name
    File file2 = new File("c:/temp2.txt");
    // Rename file (or directory)
    boolean success = file.renameTo(file2);
