Why is it wrong to say "Jo mer ting endrer seg..."? Is "å endre" a word found in some dialect?

Endrer seg added. (Endres was already in there, no reason to skip the reflexive one)

"Ting endres" sounds more like "Things are changed/will be changed" to me. Or is it completely interchangeable with the reflexive conjugation?

More or less interchangeable in certain expressions. I sort of agree with you that the s-versions (both) feels more like a forced alteration, rather than something merely changing.
