You can't delete your account. That is the drawback of trying to be the bad guy and doing stupid things, people will not like you. Should have though of that before whatever you did. You can truly start over, just don't talk to anyone you knew before, be different and don't say who you were. But if whatever you did was really bad, it tends to stick for some people. I had different characters before too few years back, handful of people know who they were, I guess sometime it just takes time.
No it wouldn't be IC/OOC violation. They can just as easily say they were talking OOC which they would have to be, because IC you are not your old self. Would be a different case if they would or someone try to kill you or something because of your past character. However it is quite their choice what to do with that information. If you are bothered that they do not like you as a player, don't talk to them. If they are harrasing you because of your past, report them.
As much as it can look like fun to mess with people you can't really expect people will just move on when you drop char. It wasn't the character that did those things, it was the player behind it, so if you did it with one char, you are capable of doing it again.
Oh and as far as I know NPC travel, transport factions can link starports to the NPC network, I'd talk to them and see if they have a list of locations where they have starports.
