Scripting is what it is all about. You are making me nervous the the "em GUI" remark.

Hopefully most or all of the access requirements ( grants ) are being handled already by roles.

A little judicious use of some sql, some plsql, and ( perhaps release dependent ) some dbms_metadata should allow you a nice set of different scripts. For me, you want one set for the roles, another for the user creations, another for granting the roles to the users, and another to give the access rights to the roles.
