If you just root, no. It won't change anything other than being able to use features/apps that require root access. If you flash a custom ROM, then it can significantly change things. Especially if you use an AOSP ROM like CyanogenMod or MIUI.

I just rooted my evo about a month ago my self and had it since it was released in the wild. I tell you I wish I would have rooted way sooner. Was real super easy using unrevoked3. It is HIGHLY customizable. From having gingerbread to different boot up animations & sounds. I changed my screen clicking noise, as well screen on/off sounds. Says welcome/ see you later alligator. There's so much, I'm a noob that's how easy it is. Plus dev and other users are real helpful.

To simply answer your question, no rooting your phone will not change it at all. It will, however, make it possible for you to change it in just about any way you can imagine. Once you load up a new ROM, your EVO experience will change, sometimes slightly, sometimes greatly, depending on the ROM. Before you flash any ROM you should read through its XDA thread so you know exactly what you are getting into. Most ROM posts will include screen shots so you can see how the UI has been altered/themed. When you try something like MIUI it will feel like a totally different device, as things look different and settings options are all in different locations. This can be a good or bad thing, depending on how much you like messing/playing with new things.-Stay thirsty my friends.

Please make sure you read this AC editorial: http://www.androidcentral.com/someti...%80%99t-answer
While rooting is cool and allows you to be able to do a LOT with your device, it is not for everyone. I could give lots of examples, but I think the editorial speaks well to the virtues and pitfalls of rooting.
Having said that, there are also a LOT of people that hang around these parts that will help you as much as possible. I've never seen a "Help, I've rooted my phone and now something is broke" go unresponded to.
