What I want to do is to create segments automatically for each user id. For each user that login into the site I want to see the different sessions and events of each user. Would like to know if there is a better way of doing this.

example:
SegmetForUser1
                       session1 (events)
userName1 -- session2 (events)
                       session3 (events)


SegmetForUser2
                       session1 (events)
userName2 -- session2 (events)
                       session3 (events)

Your account can hold a limited number of defined segments, so what you are asking for would be very limited. With the API, you could create them on-the-fly (dynamic) with each query.  If the you start to get sampling, though, the reports are instantly garbage, so this would not work for a high-volume site.
