Changing mail accounts in iCloud and Mac Mail

I didn't know what forum to ask this in, so I hope that I'm close...
Iím so confused! I somehow seem to have set up multiple @me.com mail accounts, and I really donít want any of them. The background: I ordinarily use Yahoo Mail from within Safari (looong story) on my Mac (running Mountain Lion). Call that account firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mail icons on both my iPad and iPhone are linked to that same account, email@example.com. My Apple ID is also firstname.lastname@example.org. Furthermore, when I click on ďManage your Apple IDĒ within apple.com, it also shows my primary email address as email@example.com. So far, so good. No problem.
However, if I sign in to icloud.com using my Apple ID and password and click its Mail icon, then the New Mail icon, the from field of the new mail message is firstname.lastname@example.org. Furthermore, when I sign on to the Mail application on my Mac and click on the New Mail icon, the from field of the mail message is email@example.com. How can I change these to the firstname.lastname@example.org account? And of lesser concern, how can I eradicate the 2 @me.com accounts?
