"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Largely no as installing a printer usually requires administrative access.

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

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:
