Yep, you're missing something....and that would be a way to set a string parameter in another session. We're all missing it... :)
I've seen this discussed a number of times over the years. To my knowledge, there's still no satisfactory solution, through 11.2.

Subject: dbms_system - set a string parameter in another session?
I feel like I am missing something when I look at dbms_system.
There are routines for setting integer and boolean parameter values in another session:
What about setting string values?
For instance, I would like to do the equivalent of this in another users session:
ALTER SESSION SET use_stored_outlines=CIM_TUNE
but via dbms_system when the user logs on, or dynamically.
I know I can use execute immediate in a trigger, but that does not help with changing the value in a current session.
Hopefully this is not a D'Oh! moment. :)
