Do you mean to change your own or a different one? As long as your account has administrative rights you can change any password at any time.

If it is for your account go to Profile and under Modify Profile you will  see Account Settings click that and the option to change your password will be at the near bottom of the page.

If it is for a different member go to the Member list and click on their name and then Modify Profile and click Account Settings and then change password will be in the same location as stated before.

If you forgot your forum password and you had created it in the first place you can have your password reset. To make another account a administrator you must be one already, to make another account an administrator you must go to that users account settings and change the member group to Administrator . 
 
If this dose not help, I'm sorry but I do not understand what your asking about "easier passwords".

The password requested when trying to access the Admin Control Panel is the same password you use to log in. If you wish to change your own password, you need to go to your Profile and click Account Settings. There, you will be presented with an option to change your password. If you wish to change another admin's password, the instructions are the same, except you go to their profile instead. I recommend that you first notify the admin that you are going to change their password.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.
