This is what HBAC test is about

I do not think we have a sudo simulator.
But you can file a ticket.

You can lookup password policies via ldap or capture the screens, that
should be enough.
For the setup of new user you can point to the documentation.
For the privileges you can also point to the documentation that
describes our access control and delegation model.
