TeraTerm is just a serial and telnet/ssh client. You can have TestStand call into a code module (written in LabVIEW, CVI, .NET, etc.) to do the same thing that TeraTerm is doing.

Is it necessary that they continue using Tera Term? According to some posts on the Tera Term forums, it would not be the simplest way to integrate with TestStand. There are other serial communication .dll packages which you could easily command.
Here is an NI forum post from someone who similarly wanted to control Tera Term from LabVIEW. Ultimately, it was decided to just use an example VI which accomplishes serial communication. If LabVIEW is an option for you, then using it as a code module in TestStand should be a breeze. There are other suggestions in that thread which may be helpful to you.

If you have simple IO comunication you could write s codemodle as snowpunter descriped it.
If you have an emulation like a VT100 Terminal you could use HyperAccess, it has an ActiveX interface which can be controlled my TS
Hope this helps
