What might be then the best settings for sharing/security to achieve the abovementioned scenario?
All the best
This would be easier to set up as two shares, but it can be done with one. The reason being, your requirement to allow add permissions only at the root level, and that means we have to play around with a third set of permissions, called "Special permissions".
I'm going to assume that the users are "users" and not "administrators".
Create your folder that you want to share if you have not already.
Using Properties, sharing, advanced sharing share the folder as R and click permissions.
I always remove the Everyone permission, and grant group permissions for users and administrators, Eg. Users(change), Administrators(Full control). But if you'd prefer you can just share it to everyone with change permissions.
Next comes the security. By default users get Read, execute and List contents.
The table here explains the file/folder permissions, I'd recommend you have a read. File and Folder Permissions
If you wish to limit subfolder creation from this root folder, you are going to have to use special permissions.

Again, have a read. It's a little technical but I think you can get the idea.
Have a play around with that. If you set up a test folder, you can delete it and recreate it if it doesn't work exactly how you want. Once you find the combination of permissions that suites your needs best you can apply that to your live folder.
If you need more help just let us know.
