Can I grant a user a Rename permission and deny the Delete permission at the same time?

Nope, sorry. From an NTFS point of view, a "Rename" is the same as "Delete and recreate with a new name".

No, you can't,
rename is writing, and same as deleting is writing to disk too.
however this can be made by a special application that will override the system procedures.
