Do you see it as a menu where you manage users and choose accessible object for each of them?

Given all this, you might consider creating vCenter Server accounts (via granular access lists). In this case they shouldn't mess up your vCenter Server installation.
On the other hand, if vCenter Server user is still a "no go", then I would suggest creating web-based dashboards for each account (scoped to their VMs). This would be a good start in your project.
