    the coverage is tied to the serial number of the computer

    No. As above AppleCare is tied to the device.

    No it won't. The only time it's transferable is if it's a warranty replacement through apple

    No, the coverage is for one device and one device only. If buying directly from apple you'll be getting new coverage anyways (the usual 1 year if you're in the US). If you buying a used computer from a third party, you'll have to look into coverage from places like trade square and similar.

    As stated by others, its tied to the serial number of the MBP - there's no way to call or change the information.
