Emacs has that feature. See the "read-only" text property in the
following manual (info) page:

    (elisp) Special Properties

https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/elisp/Special-Properties.html#Special-Properties

In my other message in this thread I showed quick example functions for
(1) making a buffer area read only and (2) removing read only
properties. If someone wants to the functions could be made fancier, for
example with a button that removes the read only status.
