not sure how all of that works
If you're referring to the one provided by your cellular data connection... no.
It's dynamically assigned.
Technically you can try and force a change by resetting the connection, but you may get the same address again.
If you're referring to your WiFi IP address... sure. Switch from DHCP to static and enter your new IP address.
You can do it with a VPN
wifi address from my home router? or from my iphone? when i browse with mobile safari wouldn't the ip be the same if i used my phone to tether data to my PC
No... your WiFi router will provide an internal address for your home network.
When you use cellular data, your carrier will assign you an IP address for their network. They will be different.
A tethered device get's a different address, but will still be passed through the iPhone's address via NAT. The iPhone simply acts as a forwarding agent for the data packets when tethered.
VPN services will provide you another address that the public will see, but that does not change the address assigned to your actual phone.
It simply masks it.
ichecked my ip on my phone, then tethered, to my pc and checked the ip on there and it had changed to something similar
