I have a question that when I have made a site and I submit it to the social bookmarking websites and search engines with the url ".ucoz.com" and then afterwards i buy a domain name, will the name of my website get automatically updated in the search engines and the social bookmarking sites? If not, then how will I go about it?
2.Can i change my domain name I bought if I don't like it or is it permanent?

Doomcaster, it will be automatically updates upon indexing of the new domain by the search engine - yes.
Once you 'buy' a domain name it is permanent. You can't just transfer the payment to a new domain because you don't like the old one. What you buy is what you're stuck with for however long the payment period is for.
Method 3 is attachment without parking - so if your sites domain is hosted on a remote location you can point it to the site's server and attach it using Method 3. Method 2 allows you to park the domain on the uCoz servers - meaning your domain will be hosted by uCoz on our dedicated domain servers (ns1 & ns2).

Doomcaster, you don't need to worry about search engines, they will reindex the website. When you attach a domain, there is a server redirect set for it, and all old links are 'glued' to the new domain. However the links themselves will remain as they were submitted to directories etc.
