Which stream are you targetting? Are you building binary (.xls) workbooks
with HSSF or OOXML based ones (.xlsx) with XSSF? If the former, then I am
sorry to say that you cannot exercise such fine grained control over the
protection options with HSSF. Your best option would be to create a template
file using Excel and set the protection as you desire on it. Next, open that
template using HSSF and populate them re-save the workbook. HSSF sgould
preserve the protection options you selected.

XSSF on the other hand does allow you more fine grained control over the
worksheets protection. Take a look at the lockFormatCells(),
lockFormatColumns(), etc methods defined on the XSSFSheet class.
