I have a read-only share on my samba server, is it possible for me to make subdirectories on this share and make them writable for others/specific users?

Example:

\\server\share Only root write access

\\server\share\directory Writable for everyone/certain users

I've tried making a directory within the share with read/write access, but it is overruled by the shares read only setting.

navigate to the folder using terminal

$ chmod -R 755 directory
