It may be worth asking on the FreePBX forums at
http://community.freepbx.org/ as the Asterisk users who use FreePBX
are generally monitoring that community. Many people here won't be
able to answer your question *within the context* of FreePBX

Your question is also not clear. You should ask the provider
specifically which header and where in what URI they want to see the
"username" in.

If this wasn't FreePBX I'd tell you to just try setting the callerid
and fromuser options for the corresponding SIP peer.  I don't want to
pretend to know FreePBX, so I still recommend you go ask on their
forum to get better assistance.

Good luck!
