Have you looked at Selective Sync? https://www.dropbox.com/help/syncing-uploads/selective-sync-overview

Or, if you are on a Professional or Business plan Smart Sync? https://www.dropbox.com/help/desktop-web/smart-sync

Smart Sync will only stay online only if you are not using the files. As soon as you need to access/edit/tweak the files etc. they will download locally again and then allow you to edit them. After you've done that you need to reset them up to online only.
