Do you mean a software?
Or the Audit.

Will the inbuilt audit if enabled can get these details?

With software, Auditing does not go right down to that level. Quest i know make software that will monitor AD and log all changes made to accounts etc.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Nope it will not work retrospectivly and it's pretty expensive anyway.

Nope you cant do that retrospectively.
And quest is expensive.

You can try Event sentry, which has a sarbanes oxley compliance module to track account changes.
Costs $85
