How can I remove the keyboard shortcuts shift+command+ (Show Next Tab) and shift+command+ (Show Previous Tab) from Finder? I need those two shortcuts to select text while changing filename.

macOS Mojave -- 10.14.2 (18C54)

Finder shortcuts: Finder shortcuts

In System Preferences select Keyboard, then the Shortcuts tab. Click App Shortcuts in the left column, then the + button. Next you will change the Application to Finder, Menu Title to Show Next Tab, and the Keyboard Shortcut to whatever new you'd like.

Keyboard Shortcut can be anything you want, but I might recommend controlshifttab (for Show Previous Tab) and controltab (for Show Next Tab).

Repeat the steps but change the Menu Title to Show Previous Tab for the other shortcut

    Cool. Didn't thought of this. By the way, does this setting sync with iCloud?
