You can use the geometry package to use any papersize you want.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Nick,

welcome to the forum!

You can give another paper option to the document class, such as:

\documentclass[10pt,letterpaper]{report}

or

\documentclass[10pt,a5paper]{report}

or

\documentclass[10pt,b6paper]{report}

In any case I would load the geometry package. And I would set margins with that package's options or using the \geometry command.

Here's a link to the manual: geometry. Since I don't know what exactly you are going to do with the page layout, I just can give you the link. But that manual shows all available options and explains it in depth. Let us know if you have a further question.
