is there a way to add a new user role? I need two kind of readers:

  1. can read all private posts

  2. can read just private posts from a specific category.

Subscriber as described here could be fair enough to satisfy the first kind of reader. Then what I need is to define something less than subscriber, once I can test if a user has this new role for me it's ok.

For 1. you can define a new role using CapsMan plugin. You can give him the permission to edit , read and view private post.

For 2. you can use a member plugins like http://justintadlock.com/archives/2009/09/17/members-wordpress-plugin. That could be more that you need!
