I am adding products from web services for my Magento store.Problem is web services keep changing product attribute set with an interval of few days. I came to know that Attribute Set cannot be changed after a product has been created. So what is the possible way to update the product attribute set? Shall i delete the product and recreate the same product or change the attribute set from database. Which one will be better? If i delete the product will it effect on order/inventory section?

There is no way to change the attribute set in the default Magento installation but there are extensions that allow you to do that.
The same question has been posted on magento.stackexchange.com
There are explanations in the answer on how yo do that by code, or how to do it using an extension
