We have VMware users with permissions to only manage VMs in a specific folder. When they log in to the Vsphere web client, they can view all items, but only can actually see items if they drill down to the VM Folder. I would like to hide all items they do not have access to, and only have available what is circled in red below:

Is this possible?

If they have no access to the other functions, they will not be able to use those functions.

or are you just wanting the interface to look cleaner, like with vSphere Client c# legacy client!

where they would only see VMs ?

Yes Andrew; I would like it to look cleaner, not for looks but to save time explaining to users why they cant access what they cant access.

Not at present, unless you use the SDK, and re-design your own portal page.

cleaner view, if just wanting VMs, is vSphere Client, whilst still supported, (just!)
