Can I have a Writer template document which serves the basis for the other documents styles - not only for the new ones (if it is selected as default), but for all files that "use" the template, just like a .CSS file continuously auto updates the look of .HTML documents that use it?

Templates are not used in documents, unlike style sheets. Each document has its own copy of style sheets, which changes are reflected continouosly, but as you see, this style sheet is local to the document. Templates are used to create documents, i.e., copy all their content (including, but not limited to, styles).

Having said that: there is a mechanism to synchronize styles with templates used for documents creation; see this answer for details.

If you modify a template, then when you open any document created from the template, you will be prompted to confirm changes. If you confirm, all styles inherited from the template will be updated. Is that what you need?

As described in the answer I mentioned, this has some preconditions to work.
