    As I am just learning myself, I don't know the terminology it is basically going through a sometimes complicated process to gain access to the very core of the operating system enabling tweaking and customizing the way your phone behaves. It opens many doors, but also voids warranty. Not for people just learning about smartphones. Somebody will be along to better explain. You might try wikipedia for better description.

    You pretty much nailed it T! Rooting simply gives you administrative privelages to the internal workings of your device.
    As for the title of your post, which you didn't really ask about, you CAN block ads with an app called "ad blocker". (Free on the Market) But or course, you'll need to be rooted in order for it to work.
