It's a lua plugin script that contains a table that should be only
changed through the plugin functions. If the user accidentally
changes the table it will mess up the functionallity of the plugin.

most of these users are no programming experts, so I'd like to make it as
easy for them as i can.

I havn't got much knowlege about setmetatable and getmetatable, so would
it be wise for me to just let this be and not make the table read only?

Would I have to first set the metatable, and then only change
the index every time? from nil to ronly() ?

You have to not store the key/value pair in the actual table, you have
to store it in some other table, so all reads and writes go through
__index and __newindex.

Or just don't make it read-only.

What are you trying to achieve?
