can a developer change the API name of a field that is referenced in an Apex Test Class, from schema builder ?  Will The API name be changed, and a warning issued to update the class or The API name will not change ?

Hi,
You cannot change the API name by using schema builder while it is refering somewhere in a trigger/class. Firstly you have to remove the reference  and change the API name then.
