These are some of the most popular launcher replacements:

These all allow you full customizations for the User Interface without needing to root the phone or load a custom ROM. It doesn't necessarily replace all of the Samsung TouchWiz User Interface (as some of the functions are still available), but does allow for further customization. Depending on which you go with, some of those actually end up losing Samsung's TouchWiz Widgets. For me, that's not a big deal, but some people have gotten used to using those.
Before you download any of those launchers, I highly suggest downloading either of these:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.twsitedapps.homemanager&feature=sea rch_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS50d3NpdGVkYXBw cy5ob21lbWFuYWdlciJd

Those apps will allow you to switch back and forth from the different launchers, if you decide to download multiple ones and just keep the one that suits your needs the best.
