This is what part of our (slightly obfuscated) config file looks like. We run a mix of PHP and regular RPG CGIDEV2. You can see the User Id that is assigned and the setting of the associated library list.

102 Order Allow,Deny
103 Allow From all
104 AuthType Basic
105 AuthName SiDSpeaker
106 PasswdFile SIDxxxxx/SPEAKERS
107 Require valid-user
108 UserID SIDxxx
110 </Directory>

not familiar with the userid parameter. ZENDPHP7 jobs run as QTMHHTTP.
When my PHP code calls db2_connect I pass empty string for the user name
and password.

$options = array('i5_naming' => DB2_I5_NAMING_ON);
if (strlen($libl) > 0)
$options['i5_libl'] = $libl ;
$conn = db2_connect("*LOCAL","","", $options);

mostly, I do not follow how if I use validation list, how best to switch to
an IBM i user profile.

Have you specified the UserId parameter in the server profile? Anyone
signing in using the validation list should be running under this User Id
and will have those access rights.

Does that not work for you?
