Yes, when assigning the role of Instructor to a user, there is a
'Section' box, type in the section you want them to be the instructor

They will only be able to view, and change grades of users in their

Users can have multiple Instructor or TA roles in different sections.

(For example I colu have an Instructor for section 001 role and an
Instructor for Section 002 role)

Instructors by default are not allowed to modify the contents of the
course. They are allowed to set and change parameters.

Course Coordinator is the only role which is allowed to modfiy what
documents are in the course.
