How do I install 10.5 .dmg to a 10.4.11 to upgrade?

You need to have the DMG file on an external drive connected by firewire to your G5.You may need to install the 10.4.11 system onto the external HD first though. Having the dmg on the same drive that you are trying to install onto will not work as the installer will be trying to install istself into itself.
You might find that if you use disk-Utility (Utilities folder) and make a DVD from the dmg that you can start the G5 from that DVD and them the install will work. Might have to experiemtn though - it's a while since I've done one so my memory is a little hazy.

Thin red line down the screen only visible in the grey when the page is not clicked on (highlighted) this is a 20in 2.0ghz 500gb g5 2nd question is how can I change user account name.I was able to change...

There's something wrong with the electronics inside the LCD display -- it is "stuck" to _always_ light-up the RED pixels in that specific column.

If the computer is still under warranty, try to exercise the warranty. If not, replacing the screen will cost at least $200 for a new screen, and $60 for "labour" to install it.

My PowerMac G5 tower freezes up on reboot with world icon.

Unsure what you mean by "change the name". SCSI chains rely on "SCSI IDs" typically numbered 0-7 or 0-14. You will need to detach the SCSI drive, boot the machine, in the blue apple in the upper left navigate to About This Mac -> More Info -> Hardware -> Parallel SCSI and look for what SCSI IDs are already in use, then shut down, change the DIP switch on your external SCSI drive to an open (unused) number to avoid conflicts, reattach, this should eliminate the conflict. The DIP switch number equals the sum of the numbers you have set the switches to, so if you flipped the switches on 1 and 2, the drive's ID would be 3.
