How can I make the file read-only to certain process?

First you need to set CallAlOpenCloseCallbacks property to true.
Next you need to inspect the initiator of the request (using GetOriginator*() methods) in OnCreateFile and OnOpenFile callbacks.
If the file is opened for writing (or created) and you don't want the initiator to write to the file, throw ECBFSError exception with error code 5 (ACCESS_DENIED).

NOTE: do NOT cancel OnWriteFile requests to implement read-only functionality. Doing so can lead to unexpected side-effects for the system and for the calling process. OnWriteFile can be cancelled only when the actual writing has failed unexpectedly.
