I use pass for some VPN setups wherein I use a wrapper script to, in

1. assemble a configuration file, based on a template, with contents
retrieved from pass
2. start the service
3. erase the file

openforticlient and openvpn both tolerate having their configuration
file yoinked while running.  I can't speak for wpa_supplicant, and it
doesn't cover your other use case, but it might be worth a try.
