    If I add items on my Google calender from a laptop/desktop and it does sync perfectly via iCloud, but when I look on my iPad calender I can't edit the details.

    I assume it's normal, not everything is two-way?

    You have two types of Google calendar accounts. Read/Write and Read Only. I believe yours is in Read Only.

    Side note, Google Calendar does not use anything from iCloud. It is done with push technology thru either a Google email account or an Exchange email account.

    I use Google Sync instead of iCloud for my contacts and calendar on my iPad and I can edit/add both calendar events and contacts (then they appear on my iPhone). You sure you're not trying to sync both Google AND iCloud?
