We are using Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010.

Is it possible to create a distribution list, hide it from the GAL, and make it visible to some individuals only?

No, you can hide it or not, you can't have both :(

You can however limit who can send to that list in the properties of the distribution group.

The trick here is to create the group, then get those who need to use it to add it to their Contacts (right click on the group and choose Add to Contacts).
Then you can hide it from the GAL and populate it. Those who need to use it can then get it from their Contacts list.
