We have a central appointment calendar with events that we assign to specific staff by sending them an invitation. The staff can see the events on their calendars, and write notes in the details field, but those notes don't copy back to the main event, and are overwritten when there is an update to the main event. Is there a way to enable edits on an invited event back to the owner calendar?

I can give users permission to edit the original calendar, so they can add notes there and the notes will appear on their own calendar appointment. But that will confuse some users.

No, there is no way to send updates back to the main event. The only way to do it is by giving the users permissions to edit the organizer's calendar.

If some users are always editing the events for their own reference, they could use a macro to save the original as an appointment. I have a macro here - http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/calendar/meeting-cancellation-calendar/ - it needs tweaked to work with updates though. (Or maybe not - I'm not sure if there is a way to make a copy before the update replaces it.)
