One option is looking in call software settings. There's usually an option to pick which audio input source to use, and your laptop microphone can sometimes be available as a virtual device you can choose, depending on which remote access technology you use and what kind of call software you have.

Windows 10 is just for single client usage at a time. As soon as a second user tries to connect with the same OR other credentials the other one will automatically disconnect. Otherwise terminalservers would be a misconception of microsoft since they are not special anymore.

Powershell is just a local shell. To make a change in a remote system you need to be able to access it first, which means you need to be able to login... I would personally just call the customer, tell him about the funny little mishap that requires you to login before you can change your password to login, have a ha-ha together and ask him to please reset ...

First off, what you are proposing - as stated - is foolhardy. Exposing your computer to the wider Internet way is foolhardy. The missing bit requires modifications on the router. In addition to handling the mapping (im being deliverately vague - if you dont know enough to do this you should not be following some guy on the Internet), consider firewalling rdp ...

The specific command you have to run is tailscale up --...
