I have created an electronic project tracking form using Notes; the details of the form are keyed and saved, but someone responsible for the project will update the status of the project. I would like the form designed such that the person responsible will be able to edit the document by changing the 'Status' field of the project to ,eg 'Done'. But he must not be able to change the details on the rest of the form(the other editable fields). Is there a simple way i can do that (w/o using Sections ) ?

Why the problem with sections ?  but anyway.
Put the change status as an action button on the form.  You can then check the users status (possibly against a role) when they click on the button, or even hide it if you are not in the role.  That way you can make the supervisor read only to the form, or use readername and authornames fields.
