I am afraid that what you would like to achieve is not supported by ComboBox widget. Currently it is not possible to disable the selection of certain items nor to display grouped/hierarchical data.
We will appreciate if you submit this as a feature request on Kendo UI feedback portal
. In this way the other users would be able to evaluate it. If more people vote for it and it gains popularity we will consider adding it to the suite.
