What do I need to buy to move to Dyn nameserver

Hi. Sorry if I'm being stupid but I'm new to this.

I have an existing domain hosted with some hosting company and I need to point it to a web server in my house and I have a dynamic IP. I have a DynDNS account already and have set it up so it correctly routes to my IP and updates automatically.

However, the hosting company does not support a CNAME DNS record with the right extension that I need and they told me I need to move my DNS nameserver to someone else.

I have seen the article on how to do that on here, but I do not have any zone level services on my account so do not have the server name, do I need to buy something else to do this?

Once I do that will I have be able to set up a CNAME record on Dyn's website that points to my DynDNS hostname?

Thanks a lot for any help.
