This would probably require some program on the server to act as a
go-between, and to my knowledge has little or nothing to do with Apache, but
I may be wrong on that point.  What language are you using (getting
off-topic)?  If using Perl, there's an Apache::Htpasswd of various
Apache::AuthDigest modules available (just looked in CPAN, not sure if this
is the right module for you, but it looks like a good place to start).
Check out for Perl modules.  If it's PHP you're using,
check out PHP's excellent manual, I'm sure they have features for this as
it's a common thing.  If it's some other language, I have no further
suggestions.  Basically you write some program which presents the user with
HTML in their browser (i.e. <form> with input fields and buttons), then
submit the form to the program, have some sort of "action" code and carry
out the requested action on the password file/database (display user, add
new, change existing, delete existing, etc.).
