You already got explanation about rooting, just to explain a little more: By default, regular user of Android phone doesn't have maximum privileges. This is done in order to prevent viruses and malvares to eventually change important system data.
Equivalent in PC world would be Administrator rights for 'root', and User rights for regular user. Usually you access your PC with User rights, and if some of your programs need to access system data you have start it with 'Run as Administrator' option, otherwise it wouldn't work.
There are some useful programs on PlayStore that wouldn't work (or at least not up to full potential) without 'root' access, like firewalls (regulating what program have permission to access GSM data or WiFi connection, system backup programs, CPU speed control programs, browsing system folder, etc. And most importantly, without root you cannot flash custom ROMs.

I't looks like your phone is network locked to some other operator, but if that was true, it wouldn't register in first place.

I'm quite disappointed about the xperia p. I bought this kind of phone last Year 27th of May 2013 and after 3 months my problem started. I'm having problem with answering calls because it will stop working for a minute and then you can't hear the caller for 9seconds. I already tried to reformat my phone but after a week it goes back ti its original problem.

If your battery last shorter you might try calibrate your battery (Battery Calibration in Play Store) but your phone need to be rooted (easy to do).
There is no considerably larger battery (in terms of mAh) for Xperia P. Don't believe what you read in commercials, battery capacity is related to physical size within same technology, therefore, larger capacity battery is physically larger and couldn't be fitted inside Xperia P case.
Of course, if your battery is faulty, or lost capacity due to number of charging cycles, it can be user replaced (if you know what you doing and have proper tool) there is a video on YouTube how it is done.
I've been using XP for 1yr and 1month already, happy with the functions however not so satisfied with the battery life , so i just wanna know if IS IT OK TO CHANGE FOR A BETTER BATTERY? I am planning to buy bigger MAH battery for my XP, will this not cause SHORT CIRCUIT or destroy my phone? Pls advice. :)

You need to perform Recovery from PC Companion or SUS (search this thread for detailed explanation, I already answered it about a dozen times).
Or flash custom ROM as I propose in my post below (latest version is Honami MoonWalker v 8.0).
