Can you please describe why would you like to disable changing and saving? Because we don't know why we can't provide a good alternative. Maybe you can save a file in PDF like File | Export to PDF.

You can't at the moment, at least not unless you have control over the computer the file will be used on.[1] Bug fdo#59926 describes how File > Save As... can be used to bypass password protection. There is a Save with password option on the Save dialog that is unchecked by default.

[1] In this instance you may want to consider disabling the Save As... menu item using the method indicated in this thread.
