What's wrong with root, why you want to rename it? It can be done easily, but what's the benefit?
You would add Tim with the same ALL=(ALL) ALL. But then this defeats your objective of blocking Tim from running commands from any other user as now Tim has full rights to the whole system.
A better thing to do would be to allow Tim to execute only the commands you want him to and not give him full root access speaking strictly from a security standpoint.
