So I recently came out as trans, and I was wondering if I could either change my username or move all my scrobbles to another account?

From what I remember, there was some way to export your scrobbles, and import on different account.
Tbh with username, I recommend generally names being not linked to gender - it's more useful in such cases, and sometimes can describe our personality even better. There's still field "Display name" which is editable, you could place your name there and change in any time.
Because for now there's no such option like changing username (sadly or luckily)

"Serious and important." It's a username... There are much larger issues to do with the website that are much more important than a username. The only option for OP is to start a new account.

it is, i bet you don't go through it so you can't relate but for a lot of people it means more than just an username. starting a new account isn't a good option since you'd lose all of your scrobbles and no one would like it. last.fm exist for over a decade and i can tell you that an username changing option is not that difficult, every social network has it.

Users (including myself) want to change their name for decades now, but i think it will never happen. It is the most wanted feature but the Devs wont make it possible. I don't understand why. Changing usernames can't be that difficult! But if it is, I'd have the idea, that maybe the display name could be bigger and shown instead of the username. It would only be a small design change. The old username could be called url name or something, because that's the main thing it is used for. This would be similar to what Youtube did with their new usernames a few years ago...
