In short:
* SOGo Integrator helps on Integrating your SOGo Account into
Thunderbird/Lightning. It finds your SOGo Address books, SOGo calendars
and helps to adds them automatically. So you don't need to search and
specify the URLs yourself. It also provides a route to setup IMAP
sharing in thunderbird. It also can be configuered to update your
add-ons from your own server for better control.
* SOGo Connector synchronizes your SOGo address books with Thunderbird.
* Mozilla Lightning synchronizes, displays and edits your SOGo calendars
within Thunderbird.

No wonder, access via ics URL is read only!
You have to use the CalDAV URL and the CalDAV protocoll in Lightning.
