How to give some editor users access to certain term sets in the front-end so they can add/remove them? The route to manage this is by default: site settings > Term Store Management Tool, but we don't want to give users access to this part of the site.

You can set property of term set as "Open" which will let anyone add a new term to an open term set.

So user not necessarily need to go to the path mentioned above. In list/library while selection of term user can provide new terms as well. (same like allow fill in choices for choice field)
