I have an old computer in production use for e-mail / web / ftp and was wondering what files should be duplicated for user information / password. would rsync be a decent app to automate this process? the mirror machine is on the same LAN.

I know where the user data is, just not the system-level user information.

Yes I would use rsync. You can use it over ssh to automate and encrypt the process.
