I would love to be able to easily change and organise my presets within Lightroom CC.

When there are a lot of presets loaded, it is quite a process to rename 500+ presets. I miss how I could manage / bulk edit my presets in their specific folders.

The problem is that when you have purchased presets, their names are often very long which makes it near impossible to know which preset is which as the preset panel is a certain width.

The Preset and Profile management tools added in Lightroom CC version 1.4, released earlier today should give you what you need. Update and give it a try and let us know how it is working for you.

Click on the three dots to organise the preset groups. Right-click on a preset to rename it.

This is nowhere near what we wanted. I have more than 2500 presets that I now have to right click one at the time and move to a group. Manage presets only gives you access to manage the groups, not the actual presets. How can a vital feature like bulk edit presets not be a part in a professional photo editing software for photographers that most likely use thousands of presets in their career?

I agree with the other folks. If we could at least import our present files directly to a Preset Group Name, that would be HUGE. I have a ton of these and I have to first import them to User Presets, then move them one-by-one to the new group I created. VERY painful. Please give us a way to create Preset Groups and directly import into that Group. Thanks!
