Heavy.

The only real options you have are to use ISA or use a hack like this (last post) -> http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchangesvrgeneral/thread/98e0c603-f9d0-4047-b955-15451dab8528

That would only work for owa, outlook anywhere would be borked forever.

Can you get another IP address from your ISP?

Not well, why do you want to change it?

Are you using SSL or not?

Can you give us some more infomation and why you are wanting to change it. It's a bit vague on what you are asking for.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I already have a Netgear ssl312 that I use for network access. It is on port 443.

OWA reacts really badly to using other ports, I have seen nothing but problems with it.
Furthermore, ActiveSync and RPC over HTTPS are hard coded to port 443, you cannot use anything else. If you are changing the port for "security" then you do not get security by obscurity, you just get annoyed users.

That would be the ideal, it doesn't look like that is very straightforward either though
