I'm trying to find a way to root my phone so I can delete these factory installed apps, make my phone faster etc.

Can someone tell step by step on how to achieve this? Do I need to download something? Etc

By rooting your device you will lose your warranty and during this process you may brick the device. You are doing it at your risk.

According to XDA Developers you can use the CF-Auto-Root tool to root Galaxy Note 3. The following instructions come from Chainfire's post.

Do I need to download something?

Yes:

  • Kies - this will install USB drivers
  • CF-Auto-Root - make sure you download the right file for your device model and Android version!
  • Odin

Rooting:

  • Your phone must not be connected to computer now.
  • Download CF-Auto-Root from the above forum link.
  • Extract the archive. You must end up with a file ending in .tar.md5.
  • Start Odin (look in the forum thread for download) and click the PDA button. Browse and select the previously extracted file.
  • Turn on phone in Download mode:
    • turn off
    • press and hold Volume Down, Home and Power
    • if you are asked to press a button do it
  • Connect the USB cable to phone and computer.
  • Do NOT check Repartition and make sure it is not checked!
  • Click Start in Odin.
  • Wait for it to reboot.

Another tutorial can be found here and includes pictures of the process too.
