useradd -m USERNAME
You have to use -m, otherwise no home directory will be created. If you want to specify the path of the home directory, use -d and specify the path:

useradd -m -d /PATH/TO/FOLDER USERNAME
You can then set the password with:

passwd USERNAME
All of the above need to be run as root, or with the sudo command beforehand. For more info, run man adduser.

***

usermod -s /bin/bash user   #give user bash shell

chsh donald -s /bin/bash  # change shell after the users has been added

usermod -aG sudo username  # add user to sudoer group
