Does anyone know if it is possible to change the beacon that the inventory agent is uploading to on Unix for multiple devices without re-installing the agent?

You can make changes in config.ini file located at - /var/opt/managesoft/etc
Provide the new beacon host name, protocol and ports accordingly to below setting in config.ini.[ManageSoft\Common\DownloadSettings\Bootstrap Server 1]

If you're on 2019 R2 or on the cloud then you can now restrict the beacon the agent reports to in the UI using Inventory Groups - https://flexera-maintest.flexnetmanager.com/Suite/Help/webhelp/index.html#tasks/InvSet-InventoryGroupSettings.html
This requires that the policy download is working, if not, then yes you need to manually update it in config.ini on non-windows or the registry on Windows.

Yes, for 2019 R1 that documentation is the only current option until you can upgrade.
