You will need to use the ADMT (Active Directory Migration Tool) to restructure your domain.  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f86937b-533a-466d-a8e8-aff85ad3d212&DisplayLang=en

domain rename tool will not restructure the domain... it will just rename it and it will still remain a child domain.

If both domains are in Native mode, I believe it's as simple as moving the users and workstations then changing the SPN on the account to match the parent.  If not, then (as already mentioned) ADMT is the tool to do this.
