> Do i have to use SQL as backend?
you are not forced to do that, but it's much easier for the coding.
xml might be an alternative...

> do my users need sql server to run?
unless you make a central, globally available sql database, so everybody can connect to that same db, you have indeed to make the installation of your app also install the sql engine.
note: sql express has a silten install, to be included into your application setup.

your application then needs to be able to detect if the database is there, and if not, create it etc...

this is plenty of questions...

>and i want to attach that db with my application
what deployment software do you use?
you must include :
§ sql express setup
§ backup of your database, or the .mdf file, or some .sql files that can create the database as needed
and depending what method you choose, your application either needs to restore from the backup, attach the db, or run the .sql statements to get the database up and running.

you need to put some thought onto the fact that the end-user might want to reinstall or upgrade later without loosing it's database/data
