having separate usernames and password per share is never simple, SMB
wasn't designed to work like that.

the simple way is to make user groups for shares and add the users
accounts to the groups they need access to.  This is far simpler as
when you need to take a users rights away from a share due to job
position changes you just remove them from the group instead of making
everyone else remember a new password.
