Incorrect spelling and entries of my grandparents
My grandfather died when my mother was six and her brother was 4. They were BIC. Years later my grandmother re-married and now someone has attached my mother and her brother to their step-father and my grandfather is nowhere to be found on the records. Also many names are spelled incorrectly.

Under "Latest Changes" on your mother's page click on "Show All". This will list all changes made relating to her. Keep scrolling and you should find the point at which her relationship with your grandfather was detached. If his record has been "deleted" you can restore the record and their relationship should be reinstated. If not, you can still restore their relationship through using "Add Spouse" (on her page) and doing this "By ID number". (Note this when you find your grandfather's ID in your grandmother's "change log".) You can then add the children, one by one, so they will then appear in relationships with their mother, through both a biological relationship with your grandfather and the currently shown (step) relationship with their stepfather. The latter could be marked as a biological relationship at the moment - if so, make sure you change it to "step" (by clicking on the "pencil" icon and changing the relationship status of each child).
Regarding incorrect spellings of names, you can change these yourself and add an "Alternate Name" in the "Other Information" section if the name is spelled differently in different sources.
Another user might be able to provide a link to a "knowledge article" that will show these processes more clearly than my attempt, above!1
