What type of modded play store do you have? Just a slightly modded (themed), hacked (reverted to older version, disable play store from updating)?

Cwm comes in when your interested in flashing roms, through cwm you can make backups of your current rom which is an exact snap shot of your current phone. You can restore that backup in case something happens you don't like. The restore will put your phone to how it was when you backed it up.

Superuser is an app mainly for the apps that requires root access (any time an app asks for root access, make sure you trust that app before granting)

You'll need to flash a rom, wiping or loading on the newer market won't over write it since it's meant to not be updated.

No, that backup will stay there until you manually delete it.

In other words, that would he installing a custom operating android system.

Just as an example, if my Galaxy S3 was running stock 4.1.1, I could find a custom rom, install and I would he then running 4.2.2

You would need to find a custom rom you'd want to flash first.

Do you have a custom recovery yet?

With the gs2 the recovery and kernel are on the same partition. So since you rooted you have a custom recovery. If you made that backup before installing the modded play store restore that. Before you restore your nandroid backup with recovery, did you backup your apps with titanium backup or a similar app. If you did just restore the play store with that and it'll overwrite the modded version.

There are some, "suggested", STweak settings in post #2 of the Siyah kernel - Dummies Guide.

If you look at my signature, there are a number of links to, "Dummies Guides", that may help you in future.
