I was wondering is there any way to add a custom usergroup like admins but a new one with a custom name?

Generally speaking, I don't think normal wikis can get special user groups - but if you can, they'd have to be enabled via Special:Contact.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  11:35,6/2/2011 
This is technically possible (of course). The situation may have changed since the old days of 2009, but Wikia ordinarily preferred not to do things like this. The encouraged practice at the time was to try to use the default rights groups as much as possible. There are some wikis that do have custom groups, such as "junior administrators" on FFXIcyclopedia and "fanon administrators" on Avatar Wiki. The 888th Avatar (talk) 11:54, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure of Wikia's policy on this, but I do know that if you wanted to do this, it would be a Special:Contact matter, and Staff would have to set it up.  Jäzzi  Talk  17:37,7/22/2021  15:29, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

You could also try just renaming the "text" name of your admin group, to what ever your customname you want, rather then making a group that duplicates admins. Try changing the text on MediaWiki:Group-sysop --Uberfuzzy 18:09, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
