Normally, you can’t roll over a 401(k) loan, but because your company was acquired and you weren’t terminated, this is an option for you. If your tax situation is how you describe, then it wouldn’t make sense to roll over the loan into your new employer’s plan.
Correspondingly, can I change who manages my 401k?
You’ll need to share your current plan document with your new 401(k) provider. This will help them understand how your plan functions and guide the conversation if you want to make any changes moving forward. If you don’t, your new provider will keep the same provisions in your plan document.
Also question is, how do I transfer my 401k from one company to another?

Everything remains the same, except the plan stops allowing new contributions. You remain vested in the plan, have it serviced in a customary manner, and take distributions at retirement. Employer contributions are fully vested. You are entitled to the matching funds your employer has put in, regardless of plan rules.
If you leave your job (whether voluntarily or involuntarily) with an unpaid loan balance, your former employer may allow you a period of time to pay off the loan. But if you can’t (or don’t), the plan will reduce your vested account balance in order to recoup the unpaid amount. This is called a “loan offset.”
Plan assets will remain invested during the blackout period. What happens to an employee 401(k) loan if my company changes providers? The outstanding loan will be transferred from the old provider to the new provider. Remember, the plan remains intact, and the loan is from the plan, not the provider.
