To set a sitewide edit password set in local/config.php:
$DefaultPassword['edit'] = crypt('mysecret');
(replace 'mysecret' with your password).
To authenticate specific users (associate a login name with a
password) and add them to be allowed to edit pages,
scripts/authuser.php is pmwiki's build in script for user
authentification, providing a login form with name and password

Yes, the cookbook directory is just a convenient place to gather
additional recipe scripts, apart from pmwiki's own scripts, which are
in the scripts/ directory.
Hope this helps a little to point to the initial study of the complex
issue of passwords and user authentication.
