Default New to Android, questions on Rooting/Rom

I am another new android user and having confusion on Rooting and changing to custom rom.

1. Does rooting make my phone able to download pay apps for free? like jail breaked iphone?

2. I have used the superoneclick on my phone lastnight. But other than seeing the SuperUser app in my page I don't see anything else different. Have I successfully rooted my phone?

3. What does the SuperUser app do for me? I've got into it and I have no idea what to do with that app.

4. Can I describe custom rom as a custom MODed UI?

5. I've googled and read a lot on different ROM. but is there any site that you guys can suggest me which has all of the popular review on roms?

Thx nunyazz,

Is there any way to pirate those apps?

Do we allow to talk about pirating apps in this forum?
