I am fairly sure Squid has the concept of bandwidth pools which you can apply via ACLs within the squid conf.
That may meet your proxy requirements but would not help with traffic not being proxied.  

Squid will also allow you to define access to the inet based on ACLs which can use various things to determine which policy will be applied to the connection.  eg,  client src IP,  client username,  time of day,  regx…
