    You can use the GPO to configure SNMP settings:
    computer configuration\Administrative templates\Network\snmp
    trap destination/community string.

    The agent information and the authentication trap option, you can do through accessing the services.msc
    Ie. open services on the local server.  Right click on the "services(local)" and choose the option to connect to a server, put in the name of the other system and then edit the settings on the service.
    Depending which agent information you want to change, you might be able to do it through GPO as well by pushing a specific registry key
    computer configuration\windows settings\registry
    sysServices (is a mask for the options)
    Security (mask) that likely where the option might be.
