There is no such command available.

The initial page uses a mibbit web interface that asks people to start by entering their nickname, but you would be amazed at how many people just click through with the Guest??? nick. And then... the first thing they will say is "Rich, it's peter". At that point I it would be great for me for me to be able to change their nickname for them instead of telling them how to change their nick themselves.

Now there are two options:

a) use some sort of IRC services (like Anope, the development version will work with ngIRCd r18 which will be released today),

b) someone writes a patch for ngIRCd, which should be not that hard – but requires some testing if it works in a network as expected.
