Hi thanks for your question. If you wish to switch fom PW to dependant of your husban hen you can do that but you would then have to wait 2 years to apply for ILR which you will be able to do if your husband is settled here.
You do nto mention where you are proposing to get married but UKBA will expect to see a valid marriage certificate and evidence that it is a genuine relationship. Whether you change you name to your husbands is of no particluar relevance. Many women do not change their surname and there is no legal reason to do so.
