From the terminal you would user the adduser or useradd command (not sure which suse has)

You can type man useradd or man adduser to see the documentation on it

I believe in Suse it is under the YAST control panel also. (but useradd is much quicker)

Listen LINUx is all about terminal and console control.

useradd can be good.
but if ur expose to linux then u shuld use direct entry to etc/passwd with groupid and userid same to the root

it will be more effective for hacking stuff
