How to get a folder ID by name and rename it via API

Hi there,
I need some help:
a) I have a list of folders which I want to rename (full path)
b) I use the GetFiles API which doesn’t return the folder ID (doh!) but just the files contained within that folder
c) I want to rename those folders (keeping the same files inside) for example a/b/c to a/b/cc keeping the same files inside

What’s the best way to achieve this?
