Simplehost -changing nameservers
hello...need a little help. I have a domain name with simplehost and have created a website using bigblackbag for my artwork. I added a redirect through simplehost's cPanel so that when you go to my domain name it directs you to the bigblackbag site. Someone at Bigblackbag has created a stats page for me and I have all of the information to log on and see my stats.
Here is the problem....Simplehost has refused to change the nameservers for me to bigblackbag's info so that they can start tracking my stats for me. Bigblackbag has given me the nameservers information and told me to tell simplehost to change them. Simplehost says that if they change the info for me then I will essentially be going around them and ultimately refused to do it for me. When I go to my cPanel to try to do it myself, I can't figure out what to click on to do it..I can't figure it out.
I don't care WHO hosts the darn stuff...I just want to be able to use the control panel and page I have created through bigblackbag and use my original domain name I have which is my name.com....I don't want to have to come up with some secondary domain name when I only want the one I've paid for through 09' or so. Please let me know your opinion about what to do.
I contacted bigblackbag and asked that they take all of it over (domain hosting)etc., and they said only if I secured a new one on my own or get one through them. I didn't want to do that...I just want what I have to work correctly.
Obviously I have no idea what I'm doing or of an efficient way to do it.
Tips are hugely appreciated and a step by step to do list (in layman's terms) would be even better!!
P.S. Simplehost is my domain name registrar...and I did ask them to change the nameservers...that's when they told me that they wouldn't do it because then I would essentially not be using them at all...they actually refused to do it for me and I can't find how to do it myself through the control panel. That's my dilema!

I THINK I figured this out on my own...no response as of yet from anyone...but my persistence was gettting the best of me and I decided to "park" the stats domain address on my domain name and I think I got it right....we'll find out after midnight if my stats numbers finally start registering!!
Does this look right? this is the message my "parking" rendered:
