If you are a domain admin you have access to do all tasks on a domain level. If you strictly want to only allow rename and machine join to the domain, you will need to use Delegate of Control Wizard.

All you need to do is use a regular account and assigned the permissions on the OU that you want the account to have access to. If you want this account to have access to all of the OU's to rename and join computers to the domain then apply the permissions at the Root of the domain.com in ADUC.

The link below describes how to apply permissions using the Delegate of Control Wizard.

Hi Will,
 Created a user which is ONLY a member of domain users. Created an OU  and followed the instructions.
I was under the assumption that when the user joins a computer to the domain, that computer would be in the newly created OU but that is not the case. What am I missing.

Thanks agian
