I had a program, which requires root privileges. Can I get root password?

No, but if it has a Nix derivation, you could give a Nix Repl a try.

@SixBeeps What did you mean?

@GEOEGII555 Nix is a platform which will let you use a bunch of different applications. If there's a package for it on the nixpkgs website, you can import it into a Nix Repl and use it like that.
