What you are facing is a specific design choice by Microsoft to isolate the user choices from the OS in a way that disallows direct editing of items considered to be user configurable only. Those items that can be altered can be altered via Group Policy. Those deemed user only cannot be altered by any normal means.

i can export and edit the file
but when i want to import it it says that i have no permissions because the layout file is blocked

i must update it when the user is logged on

Sorry. I can't see nay PowerShell methods that can do what you are trying to do.

Download the ADK to see more information on how this is intended to work.
