While I'm not sure if there are easier ways to do this, you can have a 
cron job run which will disable a particular account.

example root crontab

0 10 * * * /<path to your>/smbpasswd -e LIMITEDUSER
0 12 * * * /<path to your>/smbpasswd -d LIMITEDUSER

Which would enable LIMITEDUSER at 10:00 and disable them at 12. 

And there is swat for web-based administration of a samba server.
