Not unless you flash custom roms and start messing with root files.
Just going S-OFF and gaining root privileges will not change your phone in any way.
The benefits are that you can clear out some of the preloaded non-sense, (for me its stuff like dropbox, polaris etc.).
EDIT: beyond that you can flash custom roms and stuff, but for the first little bit, I usually just continue with the stock rom until I decide what I like and dont like.
I can tell you right now, one feature I miss is holding down my volume rocker to switch songs. Without my pebble to change songs right now in the car, I would be flashing roms to get one that allows that feature alone...
