For Ubuntu 12.04, I just use control-alt-t for that.

As for what a root terminal is, sounds like slang for a terminal window with a root login.

I'm using the plain Gnome desktop. I opened that root terminal and it does start with ROOT then your password. I think it's a shortcut. It was in the other versions of Ubuntu, but I never investigated it.
