Sounds like you're trying to file an appeal on your own. This is a bad idea.
More to the point, you're asking specific questions related to California's rules of appellate procedure. Answering those questions would be the very definition of providing legal advice, and that's not something Avvo is for. Talk to a local attorney.
Oh, and for what it's worth, "correcting" transcripts is pretty hard to do. They're intended to be definitive records, so changing them is hard on purpose. There are limited ways of amending transcripts in limited circumstances, but there are specific rules in place for those circumstances, and it doesn't sound like we're talking about one of those.
This answer does not constitute legal advice and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
