"Roll your own" sections with HideWhen paragraphs

I have a form. All the users have editor access to the database as per ACL. I want to allow only some users to edit some fields in the form. But everyone should be able to read and create docs. I do not want to use control access section. Is there any other way to accomplish this?
I encourage you to look at controlled-access sections again. This is the standard method for doing what you want and they work well. If you really do not want to use controlled-access sections, you can also "roll your own" sections with HideWhen paragraphs. Just create a series of paragraphs on the form and set the HideWhen attributes of each paragraph to show/hide the paragraph depending on the roles that the user holds.
