And you've indeed noticed that every commit to one of these projects increase
revision number for all of them?
If they are completely separate projects, you better split them and host every
project separately.
Read about SVNParentPath and look issue thread here
http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=1065&dsMessageId=1521048
about general configuration scheme and here
http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=1065&dsMessageId=1461625
if you want to have your repositories hosted directly from
http://yourserver/reposname, without intermediate /repos/, /svn/ or whatever
useless URL part you can invent.

Also I suggest some reading around svnadmin dump to get your repos' split
properly.

Then the matter of denying someone access to the /tags will be as simple as

[/tags]
@svnadmins = rw

Note: without a repository name, it will affect EVERY repository.
