I was wondering if it's possible with access rights to hide the delete and unpublish buttons from site content for certain user groups.

Just overload Page->canDelete() and canPublish(), see SiteTree methods for details on how to code these.

The problem is that in the SiteTree class in core/model the if statement for the delete button only checks canEdit. I had to override the method getCMSActions and update the if statement to: if($this->canEdit() && $this->canDelete())
