Hello

Sign into Xbox LIVE and go to the My Xbox channel, then select Change Gamertag. From here you can either choose from the random name generator, or you can enter a specific Gamertag to see if it’s available.Starting today, we have begun the process of making previously used and unavailable (dead) Xbox LIVE Gamertags available. This process will take some time to complete, and no we can’t tell you when the Gamertag you want might be available. If you are interested, you should check back regularly as we are reviving Gamertags daily.

 Changing your Gamertag does not affect your Gamerscore, Achievements, or your friends list.

No, afraid not. They tried recycling unused GamerTags a couple years ago and people were just getting the names and then selling them. Don't expect them to go back and try it again.
