Can I Change My First Name on My Birth Certificate

My question involves name change laws in the State of: NJ

Hello. I was born in NYC and currently live in NJ.

My Birth Certificate has a first and middle name that I have never used. all my official documents (SS card, passport, driver's license, taxes, school records, etc) have my common usage name.

I would like to get

dual US/Italian citizenship and have been told that all MY documents must match.

Question: Can I "amend" my birth certificate (i.e. AKA) or must I petition for a "name change"? Is it one and the same?

Do I have to file in NYC or can I do it locally (Morristown)?

How do I proceed?

Since all my "official" documents are already in my desired name, should I hire an attorney?

Thank you for your help.
