No,  Subscriptions start processing about midnight Pacific time and generally are all processed by about 5:00 am Pacific time.  But you cannot specify a time of day to have them run.

If you want to have access to edit the 'sync' you will need to do an import rather than a sync.  The sync tables do not allow you to edit the information once entered.

Or,
If you don't mind the hard set up on the front end you could use a native sync table, and then use a webhook/action to duplicate the records to an 'editable' table so you can work off of.

If I understand what you are saying. I can sync the info from the dropbox to a table A and use webhook/action to pull the data from Table A to Table B, then I can edit the data in Table B. Is that what you saying?

To add to Matthews post above, while you are not able to add or delete records from a Sync table, you are free to create new data entry fields or formula fields and work with those.
