"But if I change a few words that's paraphrasing - right?"
It is extremely important to note that changing a few words from an original source does NOT qualify as paraphrasing. A paraphrase must make significant changes in the style and voice of the original while retaining the essential ideas. If you change the ideas, then you are not paraphrasing -- you are misrepresenting the ideas of the original, which could lead to serious trouble.
Paraphrasing can be a difficult task. It is more than substituting a few words or terms. Plagiarism.org has a good resource for understanding paraphrasing and avoiding plagiarism.
