Service Application Pool - SharePoint - Managed Metadata
Service Application Pool - SharePoint Web Services Default
Service Application Pool - SharePoint Web Services System

Web Application Pool - MySites

Registered the new account as a Managed Account (Central Admin - Security).  Then go to Central Admin - Security - Service Accounts and change them.  If I were you, I would leave Security Token, Web Services Default, and Web Services System alone.
