To create a local group:
param($computer="localhost", $group)
$objOu = [ADSI]"WinNT://$computer"
$objUser = $objOU.Create("Group", $group)
 $objUser.SetInfo()
$objUser.description = "Test Group"
$objUser.SetInfo()

To create a local account:
param($computer="localhost", $user, $password)
$objOu = [ADSI]"WinNT://$computer"
 $objUser = $objOU.Create("User", $user)
 $objUser.setpassword($password)
$objUser.SetInfo()
$objUser.description = "Test user"
$objUser.SetInfo()

To add a user to a local group e.g. Administrators use:
param($computer="localhost", $user, $group)
$objOU = [ADSI]"WinNT://$computer/$group,group"
 $objOU.add("WinNT://$computer/$user")
