You can set permissions at web part level in the web part gallery. If you want finer control over what's available and even dynamically adding web part to the gallery, please visit an excellent article written by Victor: http://www.wictorwilen.se/Post/Dynamically-populate-the-Web-Part-Gallery-using-the-WebPartAdder-in-SharePoint-2010.aspx
