Can a user change his homewiki?

no they can't, homewiki isn't really used for anything anyway.

And it isn't because it's meaningless. I don't see how this could be done in core given that home wiki is a concept from CentralAuth extension, anyway the implementation being developed now is bug 64793 which is based on what languages people actually speak.

Reopening—this is actually not a bad idea. It can be one of the strategies for picking the suggested language in ULS.

Does not seem worth it to me. The information about homewiki is not readily available.

I have to (mostly) agree with @Nikerabbit. The information about homewiki is kind of available at Special:CentralAuth, but it's not really reliable, and the top common languages area at the top should already include the user's most important languages.
