Welcome to the AndroidForums, ashimashi.
I'm pretty sure you can only change your lockscreen if you root your phone, but you should ask the good folks over in the SGS2 forums just to be sure:

Cheers and welcome!
Does rooting something like jailbreaking for apple?
Because I do not want to do anything to my phone if it will cancel the warranty.
Yes, I believe rooting is just like jailbreaking (and the consensus is that rooting does void your warranty--folks typically un-root (put things back to original) before returning their phone for a warranty claim).
Talk to the folks in your phone's all-things-root sub-forum for any specific details about rooting (each phone has a different or device-specific root methods). This may allay some of your fears about the warranty issue.
