Can I only change or delete keys?

At this point, yes. That may change in the future.

I made a typo in the key name I wanted to change to / from

That’s OK. Just run the process again with the correct spelling. Remember, if the typo was in the ‘new’ value, that’s now the ‘old’ value to change.

OH NOES I deleted a key I didn’t mean to!

That is…unfortunate. The process, however, is not reversible. You DID run a backup before, correct?
