is there a way to rename my Information Map without breaking all the Web Reports that rely on it?
Many thanks for any suggestions.

The SAS Web Report Studio User's Guide contains a topic on "When a Data Source Has Been Moved or Renamed." http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/citug/65926/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0x57wa8rda525n12fi3...
This is the topic on Updating Resources:

I'm not sure which version of WRS you are using, but did you have a look at Sample 36290: Updating resources for a SAS® Web Report Studio report that does not open because its information map cannot be located, available from http://support.sas.com/kb/36/290.html ?
If you have renamed your InfoMap, another way to update the WRS report could be to (take a backup of your WRS report(s) before that):
- From the SAS Management Console (SMC), navigate to the report location using the Folders view/tab
- From the right-click menu, choose to write the content to an external file
- Open that file with a text editor and search for the InfoMap (old) name
- Change the reference and save the file
- From the SMC, right-click and select "Add Content From External File" (or similar)
You should then be able to open your report with the new InfoMap name.

the answer is yes and no.
If you rename a source, the report will be "broken" or outdated. Reason is simple: the wrs reports are just files, xmls, stored in the conten server. Therefore, static files.
But as @Madelyn_SAS well indicated, you will need to update the report with the proposed procedure. It takes only a few moments.
