What is the fastest way to generate a unique id number when registering a user

I'm trying to see if someone could actually explain how it's actually done step by step. I'm not a seasoned developer, but I do have knowledge of accessing / creating / modifying code via ftp and dreamweaver.

Here's what I'm looking to do: Create a unique account number (10 digits, 000-00-00000) for each user who signs up (including existing users), and have a way to see it on the backend, and display their specific account number via shortcode.
