I wonder whether there is a way to further restrict an magento website editor's role to the followings:

1) after login to magento, the editor is only able to add product to a certain category

2) the editor is not able to edit or remove existing products

3) the admin has to review all the products the editor added, before making products public.

Your requests seem tailored for this extension: Aitoc Advanced Permissions.

  1. ..>Edit Role>Advanced Permisssions > Allow manage own products only
  2. ..>Edit Role>Advanced Permisssions > Limit Access to Store Views/Categories
  3. System>Configuration>Advanced>Admin > Products Approve

These are very close to what you need. There are a lot of settings with which you can play to obtain the desired behavior.
