Is it possible to make a RODC a RWDC in future or promote it to DC? We are going with an installation of RODC at a remote site, but in future if circumstances changes and if we had to change it to RWDC is it possible to do it.

You would have to demote it to a member server and then dcpromo it to a RWDC. The option of RODC or RWDC is only availble to you during dcpromo.
