Most of the settings are not bound to your account, they're bound to the 
modem itself.  Creating a new account should be as simple as:

/user add group=full name=<NAME> password=<PASSWORD>

If you want to add SSH key-authentication to the account, you'll need to 
put the key file on the modem first, via

/tool fetch url="https://some.website/your.key"

or use scp <https://winscp.net/eng/download.php> to copy it, or use 
winbox to drag and drop the file into the modem's "File" section.

Once the file is there, you associate it with your account like so:

/user ssh-keys import user=<NAME> public-key-file=<KEY_FILENAME>

When your account has a key authentication method like this, password 
authentication for SSH is disabled.  However, you can override that and 
preserve password auth by setting:

/ip ssh set always-allow-password-login=yes

Once your new account is verified to work, you can erase the admin account:

/user remove admin
