Yes and no.  You can have read-only *directories* in the repository by
setting the permissions to allow reading but not writing, but you can't
have both read-only and writable files in a single directory.  Update
never loses local changes unless the user specifically requests it -- by
default, it merges repository changes with the local changes and reports
any resulting conflicts.
