You're asking two separate questions here.
To answer the first one: no, there is no command-line-only tool to set up
Cygwin. You'll have to use the graphical setup.exe application.
To answer the second one: setup.exe supports an unattended install mode,
where it installs everything in the Base category and upgrades installed
packages automatically. You can even use a trick to install *any* set of
packages automatically -- see my recent reply about the Cygwin package
server. I don't know if it's fully interactionless (i.e., there's that
"Installation complete" message box that may pop up at the very end), but
it should serve your needs.
