I have Alice and Bob both set as their own bakers, and I am trying to change this to have Bob delegate to Alice. I get an error when using tezos-client set delegate for bob to alice, I also tried to remove Bob's delegate, but I also get an error. Thanks for your help!

Indeed once an address is registered as a baker its delegate must be itself and cannot change anymore. Bob can however transfer its unfrozen tokens to another address (one that is not registered as a baker) and delegate to Alice from there.
