It is already possible for each user to select their own default
printer. In Gnome, it is System --> Preferences --> Hardware -->
Default Printer.

As far as giving permission to add/remove/change printers, you can
add the user to the system group. This will basically give full
access. Or you can add them to /etc/cups/cups.conf in the "Require
user" section of the desired access.
