By "forward the request", I assume you mean "respond as if the url were X",
as opposed to "redirect the request to X via HTTP response code 301 or 302."
If so, try this:

RewriteRule ^/(.*?)/(.*)/$ /$2/?user=$1 [L]

Rewrite rules are notoriously difficult to debug.  Turning on rewrite
logging and then trying truncated versions or simplified versions of the
rule against various requests might help.  Good luck.
