I would like to change a configuration file under /system/etc or /etc. Neither of those locations are writeable and I can't make them writeable with a rw remount. The device is "rooted" with Magisk. How can this be done?

Possible explanation to your issue:

Solution is to create a Magisk module that does it for you systemlessly. Details here:

Personally I would recommend a different file explorer (like FX), but each to their own.

Depending on the device, from Android 10 it might actually be impossible to mount the system partitions rw. If it is possible (and we're talking about Android 9+ SAR devices now) you need to mount the root directory (/) rather than /system. But that's already outlined in the link posted above...
