What are advantages / disavantages of enabling "read-only access" while sharing an index,

My guess is that it prevents a guest computer to mess with an index generated on a main host computer.

In my setting, the guest computer would be my laptop accessing files located on OneDrive with its Share-as-needed option enabeld, while the host computer would be my desktop at home with ALL files located on local hard drive. I reindex only on that computer, not the laptop.

Is my rational right? Is there any other advantages to "read-only access"?

You are correct, the only advantage of flagging the index as read-only is if you are sharing the index and don't want other people updating or re-creating the index.
