/passwordchg:{yes | no} for changing the password.  I don't know about the password never expires bit.  Maybe you could do that with a GPO.

/expires is for the account expiry, not the password expiry.

I don't think you can set that option with the net user command.  That's why I said use a GPO or configure the local policy on the computer.  Are you creating the accounts on a PC or server?  Is it a domain PC or Server?

You can configure the local security policy (if you want the password never expires setting to apply to all user accounts on that server).

Set the maximum password age to 0 (zero).  That means it will never expire.
