You can do this by editing the master page thats being used currently.

How to identify the related items?

1.Open the .master page in some textpad/SP Designer.

2.Look for below tag. This is the holder for SITE ACTIONS

<SharePoint:SiteActions

3.Look for the Menu item templates. These will clearly give you an idea on wht they will hold.

<SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate

4.There will be 2 attributes for each menu item called

PermissionsString & PermissionMode.

Edit them as required.
