Hi, Steven:  As long as your users can read the pages that you want
them to use as templates, I think maybe you can use one/some of the
methods described on http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/EditTemplates

Note that one of the methods there is a "one-shot template":

Let us know if none of that applies.
