I'm using Lumia 820 and want to shift the maps storage to SD card. For this I need to download Lumia Storage Check Beta. When I try to install it, I'm asked for my Microsoft Account password.

The problem is that in Username, it is showing my_name@live.com whereas my Microsoft Account username is my_name@gmail.com. The username can't be edited and my password isn't being accepted. How can I change the username of the Microsoft Account on my phone?

Your @live account is being shown as it's the first Microsoft Account you have added to your phone. Changing the primary account can only be done after a hard reset. For this, navigate to Settings -> about and hit the "reset your phone" button and confirm.
