This plugin is intended for somewhat skilled developers. If you do not have access to the database, I recommend backing up your database before doing any modification. You may use the export button to back up the list of categories you presently have.
Any defect in your file of categories can cause issues with category hierarchy that you were not planning. It might take a few attempts to get it right, so better to be safe than sorry.
CSV file line example:
Uncategorized::New Category::This category is new::new-category
