I have an iPhone 4 that I currently use my wife's iTunes account, I would like to get my own account but am worried that the current apps that I have purchased through my wife's account will be wiped off my iPhone. Will this happen if I change accounts, and what else could happen as well?

The apps you purchased through her account will be removed when you sync.

Do an initial sync now, everything on your phone will sync. Then switch to your account and from then on do a manual sync, specifying what to sync and what not to sync. If you specify not to sync the material you got through your wife's account, that material will be untouched. That's what I have done, and the material I have gotten via my wife's account remains on my phone.
