Hi There - Try the community builder addon. It replaces the user manager etc and has very customisable registration set up.  http://www.joomlapolis.com/

Hi
To add field open "components/com_user/views/register/tmpl/default.php " for front end display
add filed in #__users table in your database
to update the field open "libraries/joomla/database/table/user.php" and add the following line under JTableUser class

"var $fieldname(the field name you defined in the database)  = null;"

Thanks
