I am currently creating a mediawiki where there are administrators and writers, and everyone else in the project only needs read access. Our current approach is having all the read-only users share a same login for accessibility. How can I ensure that this user is not able to change its own password?

Sounds like you are better served by a HTTP password. That said, you can take away their editmyprivateinfo right to prevent changing passwords (and user preferences in general).
