How can a user be setup to sudo (or su -) without entering a password?

You control sudo through the sudoers file. To edit this file, run sudo visudo.

I haven't tested this, but I think the following would allow all users in the "cdrom" group to run "sudo k3b" without needing a password:

%cdrom    ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/k3b
