    Is there a way to do some kind of partial restore to clean up my MB?
    I'm selling my blackbook because I just bought a gorgeous, magnificent, stunning Macbook pro (the new love of my life).

    Anyway, I'd like to clean it up a bit and remove all my personal info and documents, etc. but leave the programs installed. Is there any kind of partial restore?

    You should simply do a clean install / restore from the disks that came with the machine. Then it would be in the same condition as when you bought it. If you leave software on it that did not come with it, and are not including the disks for that software, that software is then pirated and illegal. All that should be on a machine that you sell is the software on the disks you are selling with it.
