Short answer is yes.  When you create a MUC (multi-user conference,
the name of the particular protocol document which defines text
conferencing), you can define who the moderators, members, and
visitors are.  You can define a room to be members only, thus blocking
in your case non-premium accounts.  You can also make a room moderated
and that would disallow all non-moderators from speaking in the room,
yet they may be able to join and view what's going on in it.
