Adding AD users from workstation to specific groups

**Edit** I just wanted to clarify here, I am not specifically looking for someone to write this for me. If they had it that would be nice, :) I was just looking to be pointed in the right direction.

(Server 2012 R2)

I need information on if this is possible or not - I assume it is, with some work.
Change in procedure as lead to a need to allow specific non-admin users the ability to create users in AD.
We have a Sharepoint site for clients (hundred or so new clients a month on average), the way we do it now is admin logs in, goes to OU "SharepointClients" and looks for "Client X", if "Client X" exisits creates a new user in that OU, if no "Client X", creates it then adds the user. All these users are add to one Security Group, "SharepointClients".
Is it possible to have a script\winApp that asks these simple questions


New user
  or
Exisiting user (so we can just change the password if the client forgot it)

IF new user
Drop down menu displaying all OU's within "SharepointClients"
or else "Create New OU" called xxx
Add User OU
First Name
Last Name
User Login Name
Password Never Expires
Memeber of "SharepointClients"



if Exisiting user
would just allow them to reset password.


Does this make sense?
Error checking on user name should not be an issue (the users are created as their specific client ID number)
This does not need to have any bulk import or creation features.
These account also do not need any Exchange mailboxes or external email addresses at all, just a user within a specific OU.

I have looked at and have been playing with
