unfortunately this is not possible with simple way.

To do this you need to write a plugin, but this require many PHP and Joomla Devs knowledges.

sorry but the login module is not related to the name of the user. You can set login type from Easy Profile configuration and the options are: username, username or email, only email.

Is then possible during the registration process for Easy Profile to complete the user name field with the custom format option?
See screenshot. ie 'firstname, "-",lastname'
eg First Name=John, Last Name = Smith so the user name would be 'john-smith'

Kind regards
