The UI you have presented is not consistent either. It has visual consistency. But the interaction is not consistent. When a user adds a form, it is added below the dropdown, but when a new field is added, it is done above it. This affects consistency as well.

I think 3 is the best option here. 1 & 2 show the form fields and have them disabled, this could indicate to a user that they could become editable - and they may wonder if they need to perform an action to make them editable. Because they will never be editable, no form controls are needed. The data should be printed. Another thing they may help this ...
