Is there a way to dynamically change the readonly ability of a specific property? Not the whole property grid. The readonly attribute is static.

There are a few ways to go about this. The easiest would be to simply set the propgrid.PropertyGrid.IsReadOnly attached property on the specific item you want to make read-only. For example, this Style would make the Text property read-only:
<Style TargetType="propgrid:PropertyGridDataAccessorItem">
                <Condition Binding="{Binding DataAccessorType, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" Value="Property" />
                <Condition Binding="{Binding ValueName, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" Value="Text" />
            <Setter Property="propgrid:PropertyGrid.IsReadOnly" Value="true" />
You would bind the attached property to the underlying object (i.e. {Binding DataContext.Target.SomeProperty, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}) or even build a custom IPropertyDataAccessor whose IsReadOnly property is dynamic. The latter option would also require a custom DataFactory.
