On my new machine I have just downloaded and installed the new version of ProTeXt and have been following the directions given in "The Quickest Way to a TeX System". On page 9 section 1.5.4 there are remarks about adding an already present Local TEXMF tree (normally in C:\localtexmf) to the
MikTeX search path using the Roots tab.

Well, beginning with MiKTeX 2.7 C:\localtexmf isn't a standard Local TEXMF tree anymore. You can see the current settings, by...

I am a little confused. My questions are:
1. In the Roots screen, do I want to click yes on the button to show the maintained root directories?

... clicking on the checkbox to show you the maintained root directories. (defaults are C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.8 and C:\Documents and Settings\...)

2. I can't find C:\localtexmf, but there is already a folder C:Local Tex Files which has an existing localtexmf-like structure. Is the latter folder a synonym or a replacement for the former folder?

I'm afraid its none of it. C:\Local Tex doesn't come with MiKTeX. Are you sure its coming from a different/older TeX-installation on your machine?

Is there some possible naming conflict?

It depends how you order your Local TEXMF Path inside the list of registrated root directories. Files are searched, concerning to the list, from top to bottom.
