There is no builtin functionality for this.  But I can see where it
could be useful.  Hm.  One idea was to implement a general mechanism
for putting parameters into the filename, then one could also put
things like passwords there.

Or Tramp could read something like ~/.authinfo.

Okay, I will put it on the todo list.  But I'm not promising anything
:-/  I'm too busy.

In the meantime, would it work for you to use ssh to access
everything?  That could work without you having to enter a password.
