I'm using WinSCP to login from a windows machine into a Linux Box

Please read FAQ. If that does not help, come back.

FAQ is a bit unclear

I have had a look at the FAQ and am a bit unsure. it seems to indicate that that this is indeed possible but I cannot seem to follow its instructions/suggestions on how to exactly sudo su in as another user. Either I'm missing some crucial step or it isn't there.

On the other hand, I do not understand what do you miss... What step is not clear for you?

I have to agree with OP - the FAQ is very difficult to follow. My team ended up using a different product.
Can you please share with us how does the "different product" handle this better?
