More precisely: you have to root and flash a kernel with full ntfs support. The stock kernel can't write to ntfs partitions under any circumstances.
You have to be rooted to mount your drives with apps like StickMount, but there are apps that let you read external storage without mounting and so, without need for rooting.

Edit: seems like I misread a bit, you can edit non-ntfs partitions fine with the stock kernel tho. I don't think the apps that don't require root allow edits, but don't pin me down on that.
