A friend bought a new iPhone 13, now her iMac won't accept her old password.
Do they set a new iMac password when you buy an iPhone?

No.

But if you tie your Mac password to your Apple ID and do a reset of your password on your Apple ID when you have problems setting up your new iPhone, that might change your Mac login password.

She bought iPhone 13 from Verizon online and they did setup with her, online I believe.
How should she retrieve her new forgotten password?

There are times when syncing between a Mac and an iPhone/iCloud where your Mac will ask for your iPhone passcode. Read the dialog boxes carefully.

Without further details, all that I can suggest is that she reach out to Apple or to an Apple certified consultant in her area.
