A "pseudo user" is simply one that doesn't belong to a real person.
Look through /etc/passwd and you'll see a variety of these.  To create
another user on your system will depend on your distribution, but
typically this can be done via programs like "adduser" or "useradd".
Just be sure that the user is not created without password--insure
that it's either got a password or the password is locked.
