On our system, we have a group profile that owns all of the "ordinary
user" user profiles on the system.   Then, anyone who is a member of that
group can change the profiles -- you don't need to be a security officer.

Of course this also means that we can change passwords -- which might be
more than you're looking for...

As far as initiating it with a PC program, you could write something that
does this...  wouldn't be too hard if you're familiar with network
programming...
