It's not against any law that I know of to walk and push your bike. As you get stronger, you will be able to ride more of the hill, and probably eventually all of it.
Studded tires? Snow tires? Which are you considering? And why, is it icy and or snowy? If you're asking about studded tires because it's icy, then yes that would help, but be careful on the curves. Studs help but you can't get reckless on them as they will only help so much. And if it's snowy and you're asking about snow tires, the same still applies. You have to take care.
I go very cautiously downhill on snow and or ice.
