But let's come to the basics first: How would I change the IP that is assigned to the Primary Interface, or NIC address on CentOS? This should, as a result mean, that every client who connects to my OpenVPN gets assigned a different external IP, e.g. 216.xx.xx.170, instead of the current one, e.g. 216.xx.xx.164?

You dont need to change the 'main IP' of your interface. If your system is using the main IP, it's probably because you're doing nat POSTROUTING with MASQUERADE target. If you change MASQUERADE and use SNAT, you can specify which would be the translated address.

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING [your options here]  -j MASQUERADE
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING [your options here] -j SNAT --to-source 216.xx.xx.YYY

   But this is a iptables problem, not related to OpenVPN at all !
