I created a admin menu for my Wordpress website. The capabillity / rules are set to manage_options. Now I want give permission to another user that is only an editor.

Does anybody know how I can do that?

To grant access to the menu for users with Editor role, in place of manage_options use publish_pages as the capability.

To be able to guide you in the future, use the breakdown of capabilities listed in this page below. Pick a capability that is present only in the roles you're targeting.
