Can you change the Apple ID that your iPhone is registered with?

Also is it good for different family members to use different Apple IDs or same one?

Yeah, you can use a different ID.

EDIT: Go here first and unregister the iPhone from your old Apple ID - Link
Then go here and register it with your new Apple ID. - Link.

I would recommend having different IDs per person, as it'll make life much easier. But, the big downside is that you'll have to buy apps separately (no sharing on multiple devices).

Ok. Thank you.

We got new iPhone 5s and want to sync some old accounts.

In one account, I want to preserve the progress in games (Pony Trails mainly, there's other things called Ham Race and Stickman 2).

I backed up the iPhone (old) and then synced it with iPhone 5 but the games are not there. I searched to see if the game was in the iTunes to see if I could manually drag it to the iPhone 5 but it wasn't there neither.

What could I be doing wrong?[COLOR="#808080"]

In what ways would it make it easier?

I answered you in the other thread that you started asking about previously downloaded apps.
