That is not possible. Enabling extensions is restricted to the php.ini file. (See the manual)

It is possible to use the dl() function, but it has severe limitations. - Most notably, it is not available when running PHP as an Apache module, and even when running in CGI mode it is usually disabled for security reasons.

Yes, the server admin will be able to do this.

I am a little surprised that your setup has GD disabled in the first place. It's usually considered one of the code PHP extensions that you can assume hosts support (kind of like the MySQL extensions).
