Sure. Add two shaper rules, one with source any and a destination of the
first subnet (you can't enter ranges, only subnets - use a subnet
calculator - you may have to adjust your ranges a bit so you can make them
fit between subnet boundaries), mask = destination, bandwidth = 128.
Same for the second rule, but use the other subnet and bandwidth = 256. No
rule for your gaming hosts (= unlimited). Voilà.

Not planned. Physical access = booom. Security through obscurity = not
desirable. And even on those routers where there is a console password,
there is always a reset switch that you can use once you have physical
access to it. So they're not better at all - they just take more work in
case you forget the password or something.
