Editing the certificate store on a platform is going to require running
native code, and browsers are not going to be doing that for you.

So it seems to me (very much from the outside of the problem) that you
will need either:

a) a step-by-step upload/download guide, using the in-built platform
capabilities for editing the store and HTML forms for data exchange; or

b) your own native code application which the user downloads and runs to
help with the process.

I suspect a) might be quite difficult to make usable.
