Is there a way for me to run a script that would toggle from my pc as400 session- open up a window explorer session and go to a particular website with the correct parm passed so that I could then retrieve a web bill for display on the pc. I would like to have a cmd key on the 400 that allows the user to display a customers bill on the web. I would assume special programming would need to be in place on the website for passwords passed and customer numbers

Yes. To accomplish what you want various users have used the Start PC Command command, the Run Remote Command command, rexec from qshell, the rexec API, and I’m sure many other similar approaches.

If you can pass the password and parm as parameters that simplifies life immensely. If you have to navigate your way through passwords and customer numbers it gets trickier.
