Lifting and gently pulling the plate to loosen the stitches to get at them to cut the thread isnt a problem.
Well, unless he is a good seamstress, I recommend he takes it to your local dry cleaners. They would be able to remove the plate for him without making a hole in it if he was to do it. Been there, done that.

Once the plate is off, ask them if they can sew on a new name plate. Normally I would recommend taking it to the local jersey place or silk screener. There, they can silk screen a name on a plate for you to add to the jersey.

Or, again, if you are really good at sewing, then go for it.
