The root crontab is in /var/spool/cron/root, but it's generally recommended to set up crons in /etc/cron.d/<scriptname> instead. You can't edit root crons from cPanel.

By default, new user setup emails are sent to the account owner (that is, root or the reseller), not the user.

Hello,

It's generally advisable from a security standpoint to set up cronjobs under the specific user instead of under root as Vanessa stated.

As far as having the new user setup emails sent to the user themselves, it's not currently possible with significant customization. There are several billing software solutions that are commonly used in conjunction with cPanel that will handle such things; you may want to look into them.
