If i understand correctly you want to add extra fields to the user?
You could manually add additional fields onto the UserPart, or I would create your own part and 'weld' it onto the UserPart - there is an excellent blog post about doing this, its actually about creating your own shopping cart module in orchard, but part 8 creates a CustomerPart that has been welded onto the UserPart.
