Am I legally able to change my name and gender while on K-1 Visa?

I'm a transgirl, and I have a few questions in relation to K-1 visa...
After I am given the K-1 Visa by the US consulate and arrive in the U.S. and marry my fianc , is it possible to go to therapists/psychologists and legally change my name and gender while waiting for the Green Card?

If not, is it possible to do so when I get the Green Card? And what are the documents needed to show proof of said change?

Is it perhaps better to transition prior to moving to the U.S. and then move in, or is it possible to transition in the U.S. as an immigrant?

tl;dr: Can I change my name and gender as an immigrant, or is it better to transition before?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Paris Consulate K-1 Interview Scheduling WAIT TIME? - Portugal applicants
12:24 am October 9, 2019

Hi. I am a Portuguese citizen and I have been waiting to book my K-1 interview at the Paris consulate (that's where they send us, as they don't do these interviews in Portugal anymore). After over a week of "no available appointments" online, finally managed to book an appointment today (8th Sep 2019), but the earliest date that I could book was JANUARY 2020!! Has anyone else from Portugal been given an appointment date 4 MONTHS away?? Is this normal?

My lawyer has asked to reschedule...has anyone else been able to successfully re-schedule their interview for an earlier date?

Thank you in advance for any feedback, comments, etc

Panicking that I have to put my life on hold for another 4 months! was not anticipating this...

Do I still need to apply for a SSN card after I enter the US if I already have one from previous years? I worked with an H-2B visa in the past.
