I would not recommend you using Active Directory. Just as a server with user data folders that can be backed up.
In this case its just like you were using a workstation as a server in a peer to peer network.
You create user accounts
You setup shares and assign users to them
Users can then map drives to the shares for easy access
Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
