Next, I'd like to add "city change" here.
1) First, something about "more details" in the layers menu
2) Next, in "selecting objects", a line stating you can select a city name (if you turn on the city names in the layers menu)
3) Finally, the left-pane interface for editing the city name, with a reference that only editors of {{Rank|cityrename}} can edit and save a city name.

I'm working in my namespace. Anybody want to help?

Here are the changes I have made
1) In the Cities section, a change to make clear that different type of "city renaming" needs are handled differently (with links to the how-to information) and that WME won't show us which city polygons are locked and which are not
2) Addition of a "City selected" section under Left Pane, describing how editors with the appropriate permission can change a city name
3) Addition of "City" to the section on things that can be selected on the map
4) Minor rewordings under "places" (not related to this effort to document the City rename interface).

Are there any objections to going live with this change?

OK to remove "in the USA" as unnecessary here.
As for how to tell which city polygons are locked - I hesitate to put much more detail about that on this page, which should be limited to the WME interface and controls. Perhaps more of that detail belongs on the page about city smudging?

I hesitated, but I did put that information in there in order to direct editors AWAY from the WME interface and to the cities form for those cases that require it. If you can figure out a way to provide the same guidance with a simpler explanation, please go ahead.

OK. I think I've managed that.
Here's the latest diff:

I finally put into place the information about "CM rename" for cities discussed back in April.

The color-by-azimuth wheel thumbnailed under https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Map_Editor_Interface_and_Controls#GPS_tracks, and viewed in full on the linked page https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Color-by-azimuth is out of date for the current WME experiance. It does not reference any of the cyan-blue-fuchsia tones we see today.

Propose updating the color wheel image to:
