If you have to, you can use TerminateProcess() to kill a process.  However this is a last resort sort of measure.  It only does a partial cleanup.  If the process uses DLLs they may not be detached from the process and will continue to use resources until the system is rebooted.  

Dependong on what you want to do, there might be a better way.  What is it you want to do?

TerminateProcess uses a process handle.  If you have the process ID but not the handle, use OpenProcess() to get the handle.

I don't understand your explanation completely.

However, there is probably a better way than TerminateProcess.  You could use an event (See CreateEvent()).  One program could signal the event when ot wants the  other program to terminate.  The other program terminates when it finds that the event is signaled.
