How to add a role, how to add a new user to JIRA

The new format for JIRA is a total disaster. We can't create a new ROLE and the only option on the drop-down menu is Administrator. So we can add a person if they already existed in our former JIRA project, but only as an Admin, and we can't add a new team member at all. The documentation is out-of-date and inaccurate. Has anyone worked out how to use this abysmal new JIRA?  And has anyone got the home address of the JIRA CEO so we can FedEx him a message telling him his company has screwed up totally? The best option for JIRA is to return to the old version asap.
