Take a look at a plugin like Adminize

which allows you turn do things like turn off the posts menu for individual
levels of user, and turn off lots of other things at a fairly fine-grained

You can also use the translation capability to 'translate' the names of
things into something else. I know of one person who simply created a
language pack that changed all references to 'post' to be 'news' or
something similar.
