    To register your own namservers, you will have to purchase 2 dedicated IPs from your host and have to add those on the server. You will then have to contact your domain resgitrar and will have to register the nameservers over there and can assign to the domain.
    For ex. suppose your domain mysite.com is registered at enom.com, then you will have to contact them or you can do that from the domain control panel they have provided and can register the nameservers. The nameservers will be like :-
    1st IP >> ns1.mysite.com
    2nd IP >> ns2.mysite.com

    Then login to WHM and go through the options like :-
    1) Server Configuration >> basic Cpanel/WHM Setup
    2) Networking Setup >> Hostname
    3) Networking Setup >> Nameserver IPs
    4) Service Configuration >> Nameserver Setup

    Hostname should be like server1.mysite.com assuming mysite.com is your main domain. For details regarding WHM options visit http://cpanel.net/docs/whm

    ** Remember to add the 2 additional Ips on the server before registering the nameservers.

    The Dedicated IPs should be similiar... like

    69.10.111.78
    69.10.111.79

    With those you just have to login to your domain registar, goto the nameserver creation page... and do the following..

    Type ns1.yoursite.com and in the next box, you need to put your IP... which would be 69.10.111.78

    Then in the next box put ns2.yoursite.com and put the other IP in the next box (69.10.111.79),

    So:

    ns1.yoursite.com | 69.10.111.78
    ns2.yoursite.com | 69.10.111.79

    I hope that cleared it up.
