phpmyadmin is used to 'admin' MySQL.  You should probably see it listed as an app on the home page for WAMP which is usually "http://localhost/".

Yes but you have to change it in two places.  Find it in c:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin.xx.x..\config.inc.php.  You will have to change it there and in MySQL itself.  If only one is changed, you won't have access thru phpmyadmin.  You could use phpmyadmin to change it in MySQL but you will be immediately locked out until you change it in the file above.

Change #5 to have the password.  When you are sure you are able to login with 'root' and a password, delete numbers 1, 2, and 6.  'root' needs the Grant and All Privileges to do the 'admin' work on all the databases.  Number 1 and 2 have no password and you can login with them with no user or password.

For actual applications, you should create new users that are limited to their own databases.

Just open config.inc.php in a code or text editor (Not Word!) and change the password in that file.
