Is it possible to have two edit issue screens in JIRA?

I want Closed issues to be editable but I don't want the edit screen appearing on Closed issue to provide all the fields that available in normal transitions? 

I know how to make closed issues editable.

So for e.g, the issue is on "Review" stage, and if I edit the issue, it gives: Comment, assignee, XYZ field. 

What I want is that when the issue is in "closed" stage, and I click edit issue button, it only gives option of Comment field.

For one issue type it is not possible.

  • Move the "closed" edit into the workflow
