we have an exported queue file and do not want to replace the working on on the running server, can we trick the queue viewing utility to look at this queue file by invoking from command line or dump it with powershell?

By exported queue file, do you mean mail.que file? Then, you can access it only using a transport service. You can use it on any test\lab server if you dont want to disturb your production server.

Well, we do not have that setup at the moment, standby because that might wind up as the solution, it seems reasonable that the queue viewing utility has a command line switch does it not?

Queue viewer has a command line but only for active queues. Mail.que is exchange native database engine and cannot be read unless it is being used by transport service
