You would change them in the GPO for the Domain, and I would highly recommend that you keep it the same. Complex passwords insure greater security.

Locate the Domain GPO in the Group Policy Management Console and edit it there.

No you go to Active Directory Users and Computers to add users. GPMC is just for editing Global Policy Objects for all OU's.

Already told you you need to use GPO to edit the password policy. On Windows 2003 it should be 8 characters.

I would highly recommend that you go and buy a book on Windows Server 2003 and Active Directory.
