    I wouldn't attempt it if you are not comfortable with it.
    Its easy if you have some slight computer background or linux user experience.

    After rooting you can:
    Install a new rom
    Use nandroid backup and other items from the custom recovery image
    Un-install crapware from sprint (Nascar, NFL Mobile etc..)
    Use programs that require root like wi-fi tether, one button cache cleaners
    Do the Apps 2 SD card so you don't run out of room on your phone

    and a few more things I'm sure i missed like the mess of applications available on the market but say you must be rooted to use.

    Happy Hunting!
