TL:DR: Application system fucked up such that you can read your recommender's letter. Letter has a lot of errors in spelling and information. What to do?
My answer: Leave the letter/recommender alone. You were not meant to see it. Best option is for you to notify the application / admission system folks about you being able to read it. If all the errors were just in spelling and switching M.S. and Ph.D. around, then it's on the recommender, not on you. Not that it matters, you weren't meant to see it, and if you do bring the letter up tor your recommender, you open a new can of worms that will crawl through the realm of trust and integrity.
