Ok, I found overwrite-mode which replaces text instead of inserting.
But how do I make backspace move left instead of deleting?

You could install a new local keymap when overwrite-mode is enabled and
bind backspace to 'backward-char.

Local keymaps are for major modes.  For minor modes like overwrite-mode,
use minor-mode-map-alist.
