To populate combobox You can do like this

            comboBox1.Items.Clear();
            foreach( DataGridViewColumn dgvc in dataGridView1.Columns)
                comboBox1.Items.Add(dgvc.HeaderText);
As to edit, You should explain, how it should work.

ok that works perfectly as i wanted, now so i select Column1 for instance from the combobox. And i change that value to ID_Num, and click a button i have.

then the value in the coresponding column header becomes ID_Num

is it just going to be something as simple as

DataGridViewColumn = comboBox1.text     ? an i on the right track? i assume there is going to have to be an index or something so it knows which header to change.

sorry quite new to c# and programming in general, but looks like i have found a great place to read up and learn

I wouldn't do this by editing comboBox.
It wouldn't be user friendly
I would rather do this by adding textbox for inputing new header text.
Moreover the code would be much simpler then

            dataGridView1.Columns[comboBox1.SelectedIndex].HeaderText = textBox1.Text;
