Well if you have no clue where to start, then you probably shouldn't !
There's already tons and tons of shitcoins that have no dev team, no goals, nothing. Just a copy cat.

Please don't approach this. Or if you seriously want to start a useful currency, get a team.
Creating a copy with another name won't get you anywhere. Especially if you're not even a developer.

I would also like to know how to do it. I need it for testing my upcoming mining pool, can you give us a little hint. I only want to create a private fork of ZCash, which will have way lower difficulty, so it could be minable super easily and will be good for testing, nothing else. I am a developer by the way, just I don't really have experience with these cryptocurrency sources yet, so I would appreciate your help a lot.

What makes it being so hard? It's just changing a few values, like protocol signatures, difficulty and so on. Just I would like to know where can I find these values?
