What do you mean by "restoring"? Restocking ? Restore from backup?

You need root to do these things...

Incorrect. Restoring from nandroid needs only the custom recovery.
Restoring system apps and data using tools like Titanium backup requires root.

But you need root to install custom recovery. Is it right?

Nope. Just flash a kernel that has cwm using Odin/heimdall. ( example: overcome kernel 4.0)
No root needed. Just boot to download mode, flash. Done.
