synchronizing part of a file

I think you'd best use a script to first split the two files, symc the
truncated parts with rsync and merge them again afterwards.

Hi all,

I would like to synchronize a part of the source file with a part of the
destination file. In detail I would like to
   -  synchronize a file on a remote host from line "n" onwards with the
file content on the local host starting with line "n" in the file.
   - the firs "n" lines of the files on the local and remote host should
not be changed.

My questions are:
  1)   Is it possible to do this with rsync?
  2)   Has anyone done that before?
  3)   How can I do this/where can I get more information?

Many thanks,
