Use a selection criteria for your subreport as:

({SUBREPORT TABLE.AGENTNAME} = {?Pm-MAINTABLE.VALUEOFTHEFIELD})

OR

({SUBREPORT TABLE.BUYERNAME} = {?Pm-MAINTABLE.VALUEOFTHEBUYERFIELD})

ONe way to do this would be with a shared variable.

In the main report add a formula to the report header.
WhilePrintingRecords;
Shared StringVar AgentName;
AgentName := {?AgentParameter};

In the subreport you can use the value in formulas
WhilePrintingRecords;
Shared StringVar AgentName;
