I have been using my brother's account to play Minecraft and already have it downloaded on my laptop. However I want to create and use my own account do I have to re buy the game

Yes.

You pay for the minecraft login, not for the downloaded .exe file. Anyone can download the minecraft launcher for free.

If you want to change you name, you can do that - rather than buy a new account.
