You can use setattr where we don't provide specialized CLI arguments.
Also note that employeenumber won't show in the default output; you'll want to use --all to retrieve all the attributes.
ipa user-mod somerandomuser --setattr=employeenumber=1234 --all
ipa user-show somerandomuser --all

To add this to the CLI, you would need to modify the user object in your plugin. Something like:

from ipalib.plugins import user
from ipalib.parameters import Str

user.takes_params = user.takes_params + (
            label=_('Employee number'),

Moreover can i change the attribute just by name and make use of it.

E.g. i found car license no really useful for staff so i want to change
the label to staff id card number

You should ideally create a new LDAP attribute for this, but the label is defined in ipalib.plugins.user.
