Yes, using the ForgeEssentials Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10.

FE adds the most powerful permission system ever seen in Minecraft. Make usergroups and restrict permissions for guests to keep your server grief-free. With over 250 basic permissions and hundreds of block- / item-based permissions there is nearly nothing you cannot do
By using their WIKI: https://github.com/ForgeEssentials/ForgeEssentials/wiki/Permissions-tutorial
We can use the permissions to do what you need.
/p group nocheat create
This creates an empty group called "nocheat"
Then we need to deny them the "/give" permission (that is how NEI gives items to players)
/p group nocheat deny minecraft.give minecraft.give.*
/p group nocheat deny fe.give fe.give.*
Then your friends should not be able to summon items, but still teleport!
You can also use this for all of your permissions from now on.
