Hi @ashwinhs 

Yes it seems possible from the docs, you have to create two different roles for TypeA , TypeB users.  

Assign role1_low -> TypeA, role2_high -> TypeB. Then assign these roles to limited_perf , high_perf pools respectively as described in here - Workload management examples - Splunk Documentation

search_type could be ad-hoc, scheduled searches and put additional filters as you need - Just be aware workload manager system requirements upfront - System requirements - Splunk Documentation
