If you don't need to do it by hand then you have existing services in 
place to help you. Andrei pointed you to my-profile.eu (which you are

http://id.myopenlink.net/certgen .

You mean you want to keep your existing WebID since you can't patch a 
generated cert.

You can have multiple keys in the SAN of certificates that we produce. 
Or even simpler, cross reference your URIs in your profile graphs via 
owl:sameAs.
