Best I know there is only one superuser = root.
You allow an other user to do most of what root can do by making that user member of the super groups like system and kmem, like root.

Check out:

- your /etc/group file

fwiw,
Hein.

Two ways:
(1) add the user to the group system
(2) sudo

SUID for allowing users to run apps as root.

You can enable specific set of users to run 'root' sensitive programs by using "dop" (Division Of Privileges). Check the manpage for more info.
