Yes, creating a GPO will help you to accomplish the task easily.

Please follow the procedure from any of the links below

Unfortunately you mentioned two DIFFFERENT criteria. You want to install software when a user logs on. That is possible, and in most cases is not complicated. But you want to yes on a few COMPUTERS. You kinda have to choose. Either do this per user, or per computer. Because of how GP works, you don't have a lot of options to limit when or how user-based software gets installed. Unless you want to start messing with loopback processing or scripting to detect the comouter bane, etc. It'll get very complicated very quickly.

Instead, if you want to test user-based installed, test it like it'd work for real. Create the GPO. create a security group of users. Filter the GPO by that security group. Link it to an OU of users. And then add a newly created "test user" AD account and add it to the security group. You can log in as this test user and verify the software installs.

Similar advice as before. Create GPO. Filter by security group. Link to OU that has computer objects in it. Add test computers to your security group that is in the filter. And add more computers to the group or groups to the filter when you are satisfied with the test results.

Software installed by GP per computer is installed upon boot/reboot, not during login. Just as a heads up on that.
