  1. I have created a employee registration form and I want to assign unique registration number to each user upon form submission so later when I want to filter user I can use that registration number to sort or filter or user can request me to check his submission and update user about it.
  2. Secondly a random auto Entry key / Entry ID is generated by default , so is there any way I can change those keys in a series and using them to filter entries.

You can change keys by editing them after the fact. You cannot change entry id. Entry IDs are created by WordPress and provide the link to all data elements. In fact, WordPress creates entry ids for everything added to any table in the database. Entry id is designed to filter entries using the WordPress current_user() function where entry_id = current_user. Of course you can create your own alternate string for filtering using an algorithm or your design.
