You can make changes to place names from the place list (Lists/Place list). Different spelling & formats can merged  to a single correct one on the place list. The place names in individual fact entries will then be modified accordingly.

Although many were pardoned by Lincoln, "deserters" were shot. The term meant what it does today.

That happened a lot. Most of the serious histories of the war remark on it.

I assumed that RM doesn't store the alpha month names. I took a quick look at the event and multimedia tables; the dates are all stored numerically. Somewhere in RootsMagic is a table translating the month name into those numbers. What I had in mind was that Janvier and Enero as well as January be assigned the appropriate numerical value. That shouldn't be too hard to implement.

This is a good idea. German, French and Spanish months would be an excellent start — a great time-saver for me and probably for many others.
