You can't do it by using snmpwalk. The snmpwalk command is used for retrieving information from the switch in bulk (so multiple OIDs are queried for their values). You will need to use the snmpset command in order to tell the switch to change the value for a particular OID. Unfortunately I do not know which OID you will need to change the value of in order to change the interface status to 'enabled' or 'shutdown'. In a Cisco environment, it would be this variable:
.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.7.<interface_index_nr_goes_here>

The way to use this is something like this:
snmpset -v<snmp_version_to_use> -c<community_string> <switch_ip_or_name> .1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.7.<if_index> i 2

So, if I want to use snmp version 2c, my community string is MyCommunityString, the switch on which I want to disable a port is MySwitch (provided that name can be resolved into it's corresponding ip address) and the interface index number is 123, the command would look like this:
snmpset -v2c -cMyCommunityString MySwitch .1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.7.123 i 2

The 'i 2' at the end of the command line tells the snmpset command that the OID to change is of type integer and the value to set it to is 2 (which in Cisco terms is used to disable the interface).

Hope this puts you on the right track.

Kind regards,

Arjan.
