can you explain little bit more on your requirement?

I would like to edit "summary" field and also field type

You can't change type or name of the summary field.

what do you want to achive through this?

edit field name (summary) or edit content of the summary field?

If you want to change only the name of the Summary field, you can create a customized translation for jira.

Changing its type, as far as I know, is not possible because is an internal field. But you can always define a new Custom Field with the name and type of your choice, and modify the Field configurations / screens related to your project to use it *instead* of the original Summary field ...
