Multiple useradd and password creation

Well I'm not new to Linux but just getting back to it after years of not doing much with it. So, my question is this, I am tasked with automating useradd, deletes and changes to all users. Right now it's set up with scripts I have to run to get it done and I want to create a web tool so that it can be done auto magically for the users. Is there a site out there that goes over what and where I need to start?

Install webmin or similar web-based interface for system administration for Unix.
You can do your mentioned tasks using this.

You can get idea from webmin.

if i not mistake

// I want to create a web tool so that it can be done auto magically for the users//
most likely need to deal with /etc/skel

try this way

[root@server ~]# cd /etc/skel/
[root@server skel]# mkdir logs
[root@server skel]# mkdir public_html
[root@server skel]# mkdir public_html/cgi-bin
[root@server skel]# ln -s public_html/ www

once done then every user you create will have those file in
