    Welcome to the forums!

    As for what the root account is, here's a definition that describes it pretty well:

    What is root? -- definition by The Linux Information Project (LINFO)

    You can get to the root account by going to a terminal or console (look for it in your menu) and entering the command:

    su

    ...enter your root password when requested. Be very careful when fooling around with your system while you have root permissions.

    I'm not sure what you are asking with the second question so will leave that to someone else.
