Actually, in UNIX, you are an administrator, you are just not a root user. An administer can make settings changes, move files (not all files) and a whole bunch of other stuff, but cannot make system killing changes. UNless of course you enable root for yourself. it is kind of complicated and un-mac-like.

YOu can also access permissions in the "Get Info" window, but for the love of jebus, if you don't know what it is, do not screw with it as you can easily kill your system by changing permissions and moving files.
