How do I create another user with admin rights? 

I have created another user but this user can't for instance see any customers. This is on the cloud based version.

There is only one user with UID = 1 , and only that one is superadmin...

User with UID =1 is equal to root user in linux, or superadmin with difference that it can only be ONE per database.
All other users that you create can belong to some or all usergroups but they will never gain full "supercow" acces to database.

You can rename that user to whatever suits your need, but it is weery vrong idea to delete that user.

HINT: never user application as superuser, because it is intended only for instalations and tech related usage (such as activating admin interface and modifying views and models...)

hope it helps to understand the meaning of admin user.
