The read, write, deleted and ownership permissions are controlled by the samba server configuration. You would have to change the /etc/samba/smb.conf file on the server. That takes admin privileges on that system. If you don't have that control, talk to the admins of the system.

You have control of files you copy to your system. Once you copy files to your home directory, you should own the file, and have full access.
