For packages that are not on portage but are on pip, is it recommended to use pip and install it for a specific user or get the source of the package and set it up manually for my system?

reikdas,

Its recommended to write an ebuild add it to your overlay and maybe share it with the community.
Have you checked existing overlays for the package you want?

Never run pip as root. It will ruin your whole day when it overwrites Python things.
