Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums
First you have to call your Carrier Rogers to confirm if BlackBerry Data Plan are activated in your account , because to use those email services we need an active BlackBerry Data Plan / BIS .
Secondly ,as you are the second user of that BlackBerry device , so follow this Knowledge Base :
KB05099 Steps to take before selling or after buying a previously owned BlackBerry smartphone.
Once you're done you can use your own email or BlackBerry ID .

No without a BlackBerry Data Plan you cannot use those BlackBerry Data Services like emails or BBM etc. even over wifi. So contact your carrier if you want to use those services.

On your previous post you mentioned it clearly that you don't have that
Well if you already have it then from your BlackBerry browser browse to www.blackberry.com/integrate to add / edit your email account .
Also read this Knowledge Base :
KB02189 : How to add / attach / integrate / email addresses with a BlackBerry smartphone on the BlackBerry Internet Service.

You must have read it wrong. I don't have a data plan but I do have wifi which allows me to use BBM and the email that's already setup (my sisters). I have already made a Blackberry ID account for Blackberry Appworld and BBM I just am having troubles with connecting to the email settings server. The website you told me to go to seemed to work I will have to further investigate to see if it did exactly what I wanted. Thanks for helping.

Yes maybe I read it wrong . But my friend those Services like BBM and personal emails won't work without BIS ! As you got it from your sister may be she have those data plan which is allowing those services.Are you using the same SIM card.
Regarding your original issue , if you want to delete your sister's email and associate your own then you have to perform a device wipe , after that you will be allowed to use your own BlackBerry ID on that device . for those instructions you have to follow the KB which is on my first post within this thread.
Also what is your device OS version, if you're having OS5 then then read this Knowledge Base :
