I used the getuserprofilebyname() method to obtain information about the current user in InfoPath form.

My question is:
How can we pass in an account name or username to this data connection to obtain information (i.e. email addres, department, full name, etc) about other user(s)..?

How is your form setup?  Assuming that a user is selecting lets say a manager somewhere and you're storing that account name, you would set a rule on that account name field.  the rule would be  "set a fields value" ... that value you would set would be the AccountName filed in the queryFields node of the GetUserProfileByName data source.  The value would be that username value that was just set on the field we're running the rule from.  Add a second action of "Query Using a Data Connection" to query the GetUserProfileByName service again... if you don't query it, it will not pull the new information.  

I hope that helps... let me know if you need any clarification.
