Ah, we got an expert on the line !
Rephrasing the original question :
- an Apache application of which we do not have the source code and 
cannot thus modify, requires an Apache authenticated user-id
- however, for the select group of users accessing the application from 
the network, we want to save them the bother of logging in, 
and automatically attribute them the user-id of "internal".

Question : is there any combination of standard Apache 
directives/modules which can achieve that ?
