1) Do you mean deleting the current ones and creating new ones or changing the category tree and renaming?

2) make sure your .htaccess file is read only and/or create file named "readonly-htaccess" within the same directory.

will making it read only affect new products or categories created later

1) Then MSU will redirect everything automatically.

2) No. The .htaccess file needs to be writable only during the installation.
