Who will enforce this 128kbps limit - the software company, or you?

If the software company enforces the limit, then it's easy. Just create a
single class 1 delay pool with a 64 Kbps limit. Deny delay pool access to
the IP's that you want to have full speed, and allow everything else.
If you have to enforce the limit, then it takes a little more work. You will
need to use your OS's traffice-shaping capabilities to throttle total
bandwidth to 128 Kbps.
For Linux, search for the Linux Advanced Routing HOWTO. The BSDs are also
capable of doing this, though I don't know enough about them to tell you
what tool you'll need.
