I have been asked if it is possible to change the rights to to a shared folder at some point in the future.  Our head department may want everyone to have read-only and delete ability  

Is this possible?  To have the users be able to remove files but not be able to add new files or make changes to existing files?  If so can you help me out?

Yes but you have to dig down and go indepth with the folder permissions.  It can get a little flakey but fine tuning takes a little bit.

To get to the more specific options you can go into the security tab > Advanced > Permissions Tab > Change Permissions of the user or group > edit

Here is where the permissions are broken down individually.
