It sounds like you know how to do this already.  Linux is a Unix variant
(there doesn't actually exist an OS called Unix).

When you add a user and select their home directory, feel free to put that
directory on a network share or a local directory - up to you.

And, of course, you can manage their desktop look and feel for them, or
allow them to do so themselves.
