I want to use the Telerik's controls. Do I edit the existing fieldtemplates or do I write new partial classes and place them in the FieldTemplates folder?

First off you might want to check out this post by Telerik:
You have two choices:
a) Create new field templates and use UIHint attribute when you want to use them.
b) Replace the existing field templates with ones that use the Telerik controls.
I would do b if I wanted to use their controls everywhere or a if I wanted to use them selectively

I prefer 'b' as well, but my concern is that later on if the database tables/fields get modified (which I am sure they will) then the existing field templates will get written over. Is that right?

No, the field templates are never overwritten. The data model will change as the DB schema changes, but not the field/page templates.
