Unfortunately if you change the ID of any ContentPlaceHolder your content will disappear. We keep data for the controls location inside [sf_StagedCtrlLinks], so you could try to make some changes to the database and alter the ContentPlaceHolders ID value, but I do not recommend changing database tables directly.
