change the passphrase...

The secret key is encrypted by the passphrase.  Therefore, to use the secret
key you must supply the pasphrase that is used to decrypt it.  That's why
the passphrase needs to be longer than a single word.  

And yes, if you have two different secret keyrings each having your secret
key but secured by two different passphrases, then each will work as you

As it is possible to change the passphrase that means (to me) that the 
secretKey "knows" the passphrase.
