How to edit remove incorrect children?

I am working on a profile as a member of the trusted list.

Part 1) There is a male child listed that does not belong, and has no source. How do I remove him.

Part 2) There is a female child of the parents that has the same name and death date as the mother. It is not a case of child birth death, the mother would have been 78 and  I have a will stating 9 children and their names and there are 11 children listed on this profile.

Just remove the parents from the children on the edit page. If you are just on the Trusted list, I would discuss this action with the profile manager and other Trusted list members in case another member has sources that show these relationships. Don’t necessarily trust wills; sometimes children are excluded.

Children could have died before the wills were made.  If you have no sources, I would add research notes in the child's profile as well as the parents profiles, noting that no sources have been found and they were not included in the will.  

The female child could have died with mother from a disease or sickness that went through the family. I have seen many families where multiple deaths occurred close together or the child is associated or confused with wrong family.  Again,I would add to research notes section.
