Is there a way to flatten some text fields but leave others alone?

I often need to edit PDF files so that they have some static text I add that the end user should not need to change and then editable text fields that the end user needs to work with. Is there a way to take some of the text fields that I have added and flatten them so they cannot be changed while leaving other text fields open for further editing? The only way I can see to do this is to first create all of the static fields, print the file to a new PDF to flatten it and then add the editable form fields in the new flattened file. Hoping there is a more seamless way to do this in one file alone.
