Will there be the ability to disabling editing capabilities of a single layer?

This is planned but not for immediate updates to the beta. I would recommend you create a view on that hosted feature layer with editing disabled. This workflow separates the view only layer an editing layer and doesn't expose an editable service for users who should not edit have access too. The web map switch only blocks it at the map level so a user could take the service endpoint and still edit those features in a new map.
