When adding a domain user, you must specify the domain name and the machine must be a member of the domain.  Example, domain is "test", user is "user"
net localgroup administrators test\user /add

This explicitly answers your original question.  If you have new questions, they should be asked separately.  

Obtaining information about a user depends on what you want to get. You can use PowerShell and DSQUERY in a classic command prompt.

To addition to Lee W comment...
To make this work you must be a local administrator group member.
You can't add yourself to local admins or you can't and any other domain user to local administrators group if you are not local administrator.
