share|improve this question
Get-SPServiceApplicationPool |  select name,id, ProcessAccountName

Get-SPServiceApplicationPool |  format-list

You might see some Aplication Pools listed in here, and showing up on SharePoint DropDowns, that have actually been deleted already. You can remove them with

Remove-SPServiceApplicationPool -Identity "My Application Pool To Remove"

If you want to change the service account, try

Set-SPServiceApplicationPool "My Application Pool To Change" -Account $account
