Okay I think I understand what your looking at here. If there are lots of files that need to be accessed by multiple people the n the best thing is to create a shared folder, or folders depending on how you want to organize them, and then move the files into them. You can write scripts to automatically map network drives on the clients. You can use NFTS at a minimum to control access using users.
Is the server a stand alone or is it a DC? If you have not implemented it as a Domain Controller than doing any type of mandatory or roaming profile can't be done. Mandatory profiles are only if you don't want the user to be able to change the appearance of their desktop environment.
If you can make a statement of what you are trying to accomplish as an end goal I can give you a better idea of the things you might want to do.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
