I am self employed and have begun to need to consider writing 1099's for people that i am sub contracting per se. Do i need to register as a DBA, or something similar in order to do this?
My goal is to provide you with excellent service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I’m going to assist you with your question.

No, you don't need to be a registerd DBA - just the fact that you are operating a business regardless if a sole proprietor you must issue them a 1099 form if you paid more than $600 throughout the entire year for the services provided.

You can use your ein (or social security) number as the issuer of the 1099.
