If you have a local copy of the imported ontology that you are able
to change, then you can do it. The first tab in Protege ("Metadata")
allows you to choose which ontology you are currently editing.
Select the ontology you want to work on and then click on the pencil
If you import directly from a URL without a local copy, then I don't
think you can edit the ontology, because there isn't any way to save

Well, you could also just leave them in place and not use them. They
won't hurt anything.
