  I think you're asking the entirely wrong question.

  The PAM "account" functionality has nothing to do with the RADIUS "accounting" functionality.

  You cannot get UID / GID information to a Linux system via PAM and then RADIUS accounting packets.

  You MUST configure a local user.  Either on disk, or through some other NSS module.
