    What do you really mean to your own iTunes account? iTunes purchases are permentely locked to the account that purchased them.

    Go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings.  This will erase the iPod. He then can connect it to his syncing computer and restore/setup the iPod and then sunc as necessary. If you have a 1G or 2G iPod make sure the iPod is connected to a charging source since it can takes hours for the erase

    Then I do not understand what you want to do. Do you want to sync the iPod to another computer?

    You can go to Settings>Store and sign out of your account and sign into his.  Just note that he will have to use your account to update apps purchased with your account.

    - Transfer iTunes purchases to his computer by:

    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer

    - Connect the iPod to his computer and make a backup by right clicking on the iPod undere Devices in iTunes and select Back Up.

    - Restore the iPod from that backup.
