I've created an 'Exchange Role' via Powershell ... e.g
New-RoleGroup -Name "Delegated HelpDesk" -Roles "Mail Recipients", "Mail Enabled Public Folders" -Members John, Mary -CustomRecipientWriteScope "London Recipients"

I now have a requirement to rename the 'Exchange Role' group from 'Delegated HelpDesk' to 'London Delegated HelpDesk'.
Can I  ...
1. Manually rename in 'Active directory User & Computers'
2. Rename via standard Powershell Shell
3. Rename via Exchange Powershell Shell

Thanks for your help in advance.

Better to copy the one you have and create a new one with the new name, then delete the old one.
There aren't really any functions for renaming without risking complications.

I see no reason why you cannot rename it. The delegation happens against the SID of this group
