Paypal Payflow Change Capture Amount

I recently inherited a client that wants to be able to change the capture amount from within Magento. They are currently doing this through Paypal’s interface, but would rather do it all in one place without logging into paypal.  I have no idea why they want to do this, other than maybe they use the same inventory for their store as they do for their actual brick location, so they may contact the buyer and let them know and not charge for that out of stock item.

They had previously been on Zen Cart where they could change the amount and upgraded to magento. 

Is there an extension, or settings that will allow them to do this?  They are currently on 1.6.1 and I’ll be upgrading them soon, but I’d like to figure this issue out first.

I’m not sure if the attachment will show the image or not, but if you’d like to see the Zen Cart interface, you can see an image of it here:
