If you plan to touch the php.ini file then you will need the root access to the machine (you will at least have to restart the server).
Pear can also work without touching php.ini, just add into .htaccess what you wanted to add into php.ini: php_value ... Furthermore, since PEAR itself is just and extension it is possible to access it without touching any files at all. Just use it the way you would use PHPLIB: put pear folder somewhere and start including its files and call its classes and methods.
