Did anyone know how to change the grips from your racket like Fan Zhendong is doing it (Viscaria with VPS grips)?

Heat will weaken the glue bond. Apply heat (after removing rubbers), gently pry loose using a sharp, thin blade; exert as little force as possible.

Make sure surface is smooth and clean before regluing.

Der_Echte uses a heat gun to warm the handle. I would trust that more than boiling the handle.

In posts 117 and 118 on this page, Der_Echte explains how he removes handles using the heat gun and a putty knife:

Before he used the heat gun the results were a little more messy. With the heat gun he removed handles cleanly.
