I tried to edit the Surname At Birth field of UIES-1 profile, which I manage, and got a message that said "Uies-1 is a redirected user, which cannot be changed. What does that mean?  How can I correct the surname to "Nies"??

When you look for Uies-1, the site takes you to Nies-58, and the change log indicates that you merged Uies-1 into Nies-58.  So at this point Uies-1 is just a link to the other profile and cannot be edited.  It's no longer an active profile and you don't need to change the surname.
