Take a look at this article https://4sysops.com/archives/how-to-force-a-user-logoff-remotely-with-powershell/
if you want to get all computers and then loop through them you can go to any machine that has RSAT installed, or a DC, and do a $computers=get-adcomputer then FOREACH($pc in $computers){do-stuff}

Try this:
$server   = 'YourServer'
$username = "domain\username"
$session = ((quser /server:$server | ? { $_ -match $username }) -split ' +')[2]
logoff $session /server:$server

session is [3]!!!!

$session = ((quser /server:$server | ? { $_ -match $username }) -split ' +')[3]

When you take 2, rdp-tcp#3 is selected and ALL users are logged off(!)

Correction, just use a trim to remove all empty lines/spaces:

$session = ((quser /server:$server | ? { $_ -match $username }).trim() -split ' +')[2]
