One of the best ways to accomplish this is to create a stored procedure which will accept the username and password and then create the new user. Such a procedure might look like the following:
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE create_new_user 
  (usernm IN VARCHAR2, passwd IN VARCHAR2)
AS
   sql_stmt VARCHAR2(100);
BEGIN
   sql_stmt := 'CREATE USER '||usernm||' IDENTIFIED BY '||passwd
   EXECUTE IMMEDIATE sql_stmt;
END;
/
Now that you have the procedure defined, you can call it in your application, passing the username and passwords as parameters.
