Can i use difrent cabel to charge my camera than the orginal one?

I have borrowed my Hero4 to my sister, but unfortunately she has forgot to bring the cable back.

Is it possible to use non-original cable for connecting it to my computer and charging?

Also I heard that it is impossible to change nickname. It would really like to change it if possible.

You can use any cable so no worries there.  The nickname cannot be changed.
