How can I change the kind of a Keychain item?
I'd prefer to do this via a GUI, command line (if no GUI), then lastly code (if no GUI or command line tool).

You can't directly change the kind of a Keychain item because item details use different schemas.

You'll need to read out the information for the item you want to change, then create a new item with the new values where applicable.
