My buddy recently bought a used copy of Starcraft 2 from a friend and wanted to make himself an account. If he has the existing account information will Blizzard reset his account for a fee? (Letting him pick his own name and new stats?)

Blizzard does not reset accounts, and takes action (i.e., disabling them) against those who try to sell their old accounts to others.

To get access to multi-player (and a virgin starcraft 2 profile), your buddy will need a new starcraft 2 account key. His used copy is perfectly fine if he's only interested in the single-player campaign, however. (Though no achievements will be eligible to be earned)
