Yes
You call them once you receive the card and give them the person's passport number.
I've done it 4 times
Amex Platinum (NPSL); Amex Gold (NPSL); HH Surpass (36.6k); Amex BBP (27k); B&H Payboo (25k); HSBC Premier WMC (14.5k); HSBC Advance (7.5k); Rakuten Visa (5k); Nordstrom Store (4k); Apple Card (2.5k); Amex Everyday (1k)
Started collecting cards: Oct/2018
Inquiries: EX (15); TU (19); EQ (11)

Inquiries falling off!!!!!

I think they can be added but it will be required at some point, so not really 

 

I'm not 100% sure

Yes, but the card will be cancelled if the authorized user's SSN is not provided to Amex within 60 days. 

 

Here's the screenshot of the form used to add an authorized user; it requires date of birth and SSN within 60 days.

I believe American Express will accept ITIN in lieu of SSN, but certainly one or other will be required within the 60 days.

 

Edit: And upon further review, MrCreditInternational is correct that passport numbers may be used as well to verify identity for AUs.  That does require a call rather than inputting the information online, and they may ask for a photocopy of the passport.
