There was no such change. What do you mean? Welsh vs. Vlach? Slavic *x in this word represents Germanic /x/ in /walx-/ (early German Walh or Walch). The adjective Welsh contains the Germanic suffix *-iska- (hence English -sh, German -sch as in English, Deutsch, etc.). The original <-h> is no longer pronounced, but in Old High German the word was still <walhisc>.
