yes with a group policy object, if the computers are added to a Windows domain

Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Deployed Printers

see this article for details on how to do this:

Largely no as installing a printer usually requires administrative access.

RDP to the user's desktop and install the printer.
