I responded to this in the other thread, however you can't "delete" an account such that the email used for it will be usable for a new account. "deleting" refers to just removing the local data from the machine and not wiping the account from the Sony servers. Whether Sony can do this at your request I don't know, although I doubt they'd want the bother.

as said you can't delete the PSN account, only remove it from your PS3. The only way you might be able to free up that email for another PSN account is to change the email address on your current account

You can't but what you may be able to do is get your cousin to log in on his account and go to account settings and change his e-mail to another one.  That then frees up that e-mail for a new account.
