Hello Gelen,

Current Web UI allows only users with valid and non-expired password to
log in. There is a ticket logged to improve this:

With this change in, users with expired passwords will be able to log in
and change the expired password right after successful authentication.
This feature is planned to be released as a part of FreeIPA 3.0.

All these features are already available in current upstream version of
FreeIPA. For 4), this can be done also by non-admin user that has an
appropriate privilege granted.
