There are two XP installations that have illegal copies of XP on the PCs. When the user goes to the Internet, and tries to pull down the SP2, it gives the error message, not a valid product ID # not to mention not having the Genuine XP sticker / # entered.

With that being said, I recommended they purchase 2 full XP Pro versions with SP2. My question is once we get this, how do I update the product ID# on each of the PCs?

IIRC, you'll have to contact MS and they'll walk you through it. Or, do a repair install using the new key/media.
