I know there are options to disable chat totally or not to, but are there options to disable chat for certain users. Ideally I want a private chat within Teams meetings for certain members of that meeting that others cannot see. The options seem limited.

 

Any help with this?

There's no such thing as "private chat within a meeting", meetings are a shared space. You can always create a separate chat with just the users in question. More generally speaking, if you want to restrict certain people from communicating with each other, take a look at the Information barriers feature.
