Is it possible to create an e-mail function to send the store administrator an e-mail when a customer changes his/her address on the My Account page?

How can i accomplish this, where and how should i start?

Definitely possible using an observer.

  1. Hook onto an event fired before changes are made but POST data is available, so you can compare "before" and "after". controller_action_predispatch_customer_address_formPost looks like a good candidate.

  2. Compare already saved data and data being saved. How a "change" is determined is up to you.

  3. Send an email if changes are detected. [How to send email]
