Assuming you are otherwise familiar with OpenLDAP, I would start with:
-man slapd-sql
-see the contents of servers/slapd/back-sql/rdbms_depend/mysql in the source 
-see tests/scripts/sql-* in the source tarball

If not, you should probably read through at lest the quick start part of the 
admin guide before you get on to the back-sql bits.

ro or rw is purely up to access controls (on the database user as which 
OpenLDAP access the mysql db).
