As above.
Assume if we change the PW of ADConnect, we just need to re-enter this on the setup wizard in order to replication to contiue?
Also what happens if we change the hybrid global admin account password?
Thanks

It is unsupported to change the password for the ad connect service account since it destroys the encryption keys.

For the global admin it doesn't matter unless you have scripts using it

If you mean to reconnect to exchange online from emc m ecp then yes but it is not something to worry about.

and if it doesn't just  right-click the top node and just re-add the O365 connection as a new forest. It will ask you for credentials to connect.

Ok. Maybe I misunderstood your question, if you are talking about changing the account of the global admin account then what I said is correct

If you want to change the addconnect service password then you cannot it is  not supported
