A read-only user still gets read/write files, but they're not allowed to
make any changes to the repository (e.g., they can't commit changes or
set tags).  Setting the $CVSREAD environment variable will give you
read-only files, but won't (by itself) prevent you from changing the
permissions, changing the files, and then committing them.

No, the readers and writers files should be maintained with CVS.
