I want to start my own family tree without disturbubing the one I'm on. Do I have to register with a new user name and password?  Will I then be the originator of thei family tree?

Yes you will need to register, but it is free.

Sounds like you want to start a tree based on an existing one. You should use the [Download / export this family...] button at the lower left to download a GEDCOM or FamilyScript backup.

Switch to your account and in the My Account screen you can create a new tree.  You will then have the option to upload the file you saved.  Once uploaded be sure to set the "me" to your entry to complete the upload.
