I'm not sure what you are getting at exactly, but here's what I do for user registry modifications:

I modify my registry to the desired setting using regedit, then save the branch as a .REG file on my desktop. From there, I can either copy the file over to another user and double-click it there, or I can use it in a startup script by running regedit /s and the location/name of the file.

If you want it to apply for all new users load the ntuser.dat file from the default user profile in the registry as a hive. Make all changes in the loaded hive and then unload the hive. Now all new users will have those settings. If you want to apply it to current users, you can create a reg file with all the settings and then use regedit to add them on login.

If you have an Active Directory environment, you can also create an administrative template which enforces a registry setting.

Not sure what registry modifications you want to make but typically you should use the policy editors to control aspects of the users permissions and such. GPedit will give you the ability to create policies for different users and groups and apply them.
