You can add a user to a group through a POST to /admin/users/USER_ID/groups. Include the group_id as a param.

You can remove a user from a group through a DELETE to /admin/users/USER_ID/groups/GROUP_ID.

I’ve been working on exactly this problem and found that this worked:

  1. Get list of groups and their IDs with /admin/groups.json
  2. Get a user’s username with
    -d filter=email%40domain.com /admin/users/list/active.json
  3. Now you have the group ID and the username, you can add the user to the group with
    PUT -d usernames=username /admin/groups/GroupIdGoesHere/members.json
  4. And remove the user from the group with
    DELETE -d username=username /admin/groups/GroupIdGoesHere/members.json

Note that the PUT command will accept a comma separated list of usernames, but the the DELETE command will only do one member at a time.
