bulk edit csv file with batch file or script

I have a file that i am exporting that looks like:

first, last, grade

john, doe, 8
jane, smith, 12
jess, jones, 9

This file with have a couple 100 records in it.  This file will also get create everynight with update info.  I have a need to bulk modify this file so it looks something like

first, last, grade, username, password

john, doe, 8, acme-jdoe, Password
jane, smith, 12, acme-jsmith, Password
jess, jones, 9, acme-jjones, Password

How can i automatically bulk edit the original file to add the username and password for each record.  The password will be the same for all users.
