I have been a long time OpenOffice user now. It is not possible to change the name of the template in an Impress document. According to the OO Impress Guide there has even been a bug that disabled automatic update of changed template styles.

Fortunately the guide shows a macro to fix this :

1

3

5
6
Sub FixDocument
  TemplateName = ThisComponent.DocumentInfo.Template
  if TemplateName <> "" then
    ThisComponent.DocumentInfo.Template = "name of the template"
  end if
End Sub

The template name of the template of course must be loaded in Impress.
