replace a string on a text file on a remote computer

Currently, I have to type in \\RemotecomputerName\c$ I will be prompted to type  in RemotecomputerName\administrator  and password.
then open a text file (it has extension of CMD). the file has few lines on it , but the string  I want to replace is called username and comes after -username (notice the dash before username).

aaaaaa bbbbbbbb ccccccccc dddddddddd -username username
then Save the file.

I need this operation to be done by a script

Thank you
