If we want to come up with a fan-wank explanation for why the CPU is in the head, maybe we can also say that it needs to be away from the powerpack for EM or radiation reasons or something.
No, read-only is when they're "sent out alone" (I think that might only be said in the director's cut) not whenever they're in the field. Like Sarah says, it's because Skynet doesn't want lone Terminators contemplating whether the puny humans need to be kill'd.
