This is not "certain roles can create issues", it is "certain roles are the only ones able to create certain issue types"

Jira does not do that natively, the create-issue permission is done at project level, not issue type.

You could do it in Behaviours in Scriptrunner, but that would only affect the web-UI and isn't too hard to bypass (and doesn't catch all the ways you might now create an issue)

You can rig it up with a kludge - you'll need one of the clever workflow apps, or a scripting app to create a validator on the "create issue" transition that does "look at role and issue type and reject validation if they don't match".  It's ugly for your users, but it'll work.
