If you want users not to be able to access switch via telnet, you can simply not tell them the password for the switch. Pinging is allowed by default and so you need not do anything for that.
If you have something else in mind, please be more specific as to your requirements and there are various features and privilege and roles that can be set for users, there are options to use AAA servers, Radius Servers as well for role definition and setup.

Hello,

I would like to create a restricted local database user authentication (not AAA).
I remember a long time a ago, I was given a router username where I could only run certain features.

Not giving the enable password will not work (just tried it) because I can not run extended pings.

Thank you

Do you want other users to log in to the switch or not?

There are ways regarding that:

Cisco routers have options to configure and customize 14 levels of privileged access.
