You can't really. Or at least it's not available unless you email support. And even then, who knows if they'll oblige. If you need to swap around what username and email address is used, you can easily change them around. You'll just need to set up a third username and email pair that will be used in the triage. Say the account you want to ...

If you have added people to your circles using email addresses, and those people do not use Google+, they will not show up as "in your circles" on your profile. This explains the different numbers you see. I cannot find a way to hide the fact that you are in someone else's circle.
