But it also asks me to create an User ID name for the console. Is that the name I'll be using for PSN? If not, then can I create a name without registering with PSN first? Thanks.

yeah. The PSN ID is permanent which I think sucks. It should be like the XBOX Live system, where you can change it for a fee.

as for the User ID, you can name it whatever you want, but for simplicity/consistency, I just use the same name as my PSN ID.
