Hello Olivier we did some thing close to what you are trying to do.
We created an admin user manually in cms then we used this code sniped
  *CmsObject cmsAdminObj = 
  cmsAdminObj.loginUser("Admin", "password"); *
We gave this Admin user the privilege's of Administrator, then we use 
this admin user to create other users on a fly when the user try to log 
in. Our script check
if the user is in our AD then check if he/she is in CMS.
To check the user's existence in CMS you need:
*CmsObject cmsObj = loginBean.getCmsObject();
where *user *is:
*String user = request.getParameter("user");

*About the "Map info" here is the code sniped that will help you:*

              CmsUser aduser  = **cmsObj**.readUser(user);
              String Key = "USER_DESCRIPTION";
              Map des = aduser.getAdditionalInfo();
              String adinfo = des.get(Key).toString() ;

*To create a nue user again you need *
CmsUser newuser = null;
newuser = cmsAdminObj.createUser( user, password,"Your user 
descriptions", params);
*where *params *is
*Hashtable params = new Hashtable();

Hope this will answer some of your questions.

In your script you can create a user using
