    Hello there @Raja, I hope you're well today!

    This is not recommended... However you can do it like this:
    Step 1: Rename your folders to what you mentioned above
    Step 2: Add these lines to your wp-config.php file:

    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_URL', WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/addons' );
    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/addons' );

    Then, create a new php file in wp-content/mu-plugins and add paste this in that file:

    <?php
    
    // Add the templates folder for themes
    register_theme_directory( WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/templates' );

    As for changing your uploads folder, you can follow the instructions from this post: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/change-default-wordpress-uploads-folder/

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    Ari.
