Default [Q] Goophone dummie

Hello all,

I purchased a [ Dual core MTK6577 android 4.2.1 Gold Goophone hiphone 5S I5 1:1 1GB RAM 32GB ROM micro single sim MD0186 ]

I am having a few problems and wondering if you can help with the following points:

The phone is in English, but the apps are in Chinese
I am unable to change the phone screen appearance to Android screen.
On the web page I purchased it from, it says it is a i5S, but further in the description is says it's a i5. How do I tell the difference?
I have been told I need to root the phone, but I need to have the correct download according to the color of the phone to avoid 'blocking' it. Is this correct?

If it helps these are the Web Site Specs from my purchase:

I have since been able to correct the problem of English icons, I have also found that it is a I5 not an I5S. However the phone will not send SMS/text messages (the SIM card has credit and works in another phone)...as anyone else had this problem? Thanks.
