And the next is how to change the numbering of section to roman numerals.
It is too tough for me. Please help me out!

If you wish to remove the numbering of a specific section head, then place the cursor at the left-most position of that section head, right-click with the mouse button, choose Properties, select Unnumbered, and click OK.

If you want to remove all of the section or subsection numbering, then you can adjust the value of secnumdepth as described at

To have the section heads numbered with roman numerals, choose Typeset, Preamble, and add

\renewcommand{\thesection}{\Roman{section}}

to the list of commans. See

for more information on this subject.
