You need to use the Powershell AD Cmdlets which are described here with examples:

I highly recommend you use an editor like PowerGUI which has an AD extension and examples for learning how to work with AD using PowerShell.

Alternately you can use csvde to import user in AD. The command is cvsvde -i -f C:\Example.csv
