    Well rooting gives you super user access. So that gives you a lot more options when doing things.

    Some hacking such as installing custom ROMs are intended to bring new features or bring stability.

    Bionic hacking section should have some guides.

    As for a whole new UI depends on what ROMs are available for the Bionic. Some ROMs like MIUI do offer some cool new UI features.
