To set up user name in git:

# set the user name as global (user level) configuration
git config --global "user name"

To change the bash prompt read those answers:

Where exactly Git Bash for Windows' prompt is defined?
Alter Git prompt on Windows

The basic issue is the you will have to create user profile file like you do in Unix. In widows it will be placed under %PROGRAMFILES%\Git\etc\profile and you will set the PS1 environment variable there.
