    Login as root and use the passwd command.

    For SSH you mean? There are a lot of tools that do this. You could chech out Fail2ban, DenyHosts, APF, etc.

    Do you mean the MySQL admin password? That is always the same as the Plesk admin password. If you change Plesk's admin password the MySQL admin password will also change. The passwords for normal database users can be changed through Plesk as well. Don't change the admin password directly in MySQL or Plesk will probably stop working.

    If you're not firewalling port 3306 you can access your MySQL databases remotely using your server's IP addresses or any domain that is pointing to one of those addresses. I believe by default only access from localhost is allowed, but you can change localhost to any address (or even % if you want to allow access from any address) yourself for any user you like.
