Not a Guix expert here either, but you might want to copy your
auto-generated config.scm as  ~/.config/guix/config.scm or something
like that so you will be able edit it as $USER and not just be owned by
root(and also keep your /etc/config.scm just in case you make a typo for
your filesystem as a backup).

You should try out the `sudo-edit` package for editing
with root privileges in emacs ;)

Hope this helps!
