The Founders of the United States believed there to be a natural inheritance of rights to all people. Some of those individual rights are: the right to assembly, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom from unreasonable search and seizures.

The Bill of Rights is formed by Amendments to the US Constitution that confer rights onto US citizens. Those rights include the right to bear arms, the right to freedom of the press, the right to freedom of religion, the right to freedom from unreasonable searches, and the right to a fair trial.

Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press are three. Freedom of Speech is the right to say what you want as long as you're not threatening anybody. Freedom of Religion states that you can practice whichever religion you prefer to practice. Freedom of the Press states that the government can't control the media. Cruel and unusual punishment is not allowed and all rights not specifically granted to the Federal Government of the United States of America are reserved to the states. Cruel and Unusual Punishment states that nobody can sentence you to a cruel punishment or unusual punishment (being slapped in the face by a piece of bologna). The Tenth Amendment states that all rights not specifically granted are reserved for the states which is pretty self-explanatory.

The question seems to be limited to the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights, not the whole Bill of Rights.

How did the bill of rights fundamentally change the Constitution?

The bill of rights is the name given to the first ten amendments, or additions, to the constitution. It fundamentally changed it by clarifying and/or adding rights that citizens had been denied prior to the revolutionary war. If you read the declaration of independence, there is a list of grievances that the colonies gave for ceding from the crown. Many of those grievances were never mentioned in the constitution. Throughout the year follow the initial signing of the constitution, many state representatives would only sign the constitution if amendments were made regarding those grievances and/or individual rights that people deserved but have not been technically granted in the constitution.
