Hi

As you mentioned, you can rename vSwitch using esx.conf file but take it in mind you need to reboot host for applying the change.

I think you can't change it using vSphere Web Client. Finally you can create vSwitch using this command:

esxcfg-vswitch -a "name"

You can create and rename standard vSwitches the ESXi host's web client (not the vCenter web client).
