I did, but left with some uncertainty.

"H" hides the files from the transfer? What does it mean?
"P" protects files from being deleted? 

I even tried '+r *', no luck.

Hm. Maybe more reasoning behind.

I'm syncing a quite large tree, but some directories contain huuge VM images,
which I need to transfer using another mechanism. Because rsync doesn't
seem to handle filesizes of about 100…500GiB well.

These directories should contain a `.rsync-filter` to prevent them from
the sync, but rsync should not remove these same-named files on the
remote side.
