It is only possible by using vf pages and javscript.

A pagelayout (if you see the out of box functionality) is the same for both EDIT and DETAIL.
 
However, you can use Visualforce and override the edit page or Detail page such that you only show selected fields.
 
1)Create a vf page for EDIT
 
2)To override the Statndard EDIT page with your VF EDIT page > go to Setup > Customize > Contacts(for e.g.) > Buttons, Links, and Actions > setup your page as the EDIT page.
 
Hope this helps!
