"(vos) Sos" means "You are". The "voseo" (vos) form is used in several countries, the most well-known is Argentina. "(vosotros) Sois" means "You (plural, informal) are."
The "vosotros" form is used almost exclusively in Spain, and is the way of addressing multiple people. It could be considered the plural of "tú".
If you know the "vosotros" form of a verb, you can find the "voseo" form. Just remove the final 'i' from the "vosotros" form, and you have the "voseo"! For example, "(vosotros) Tenéis" = "You (plural) have" so that means that "(vos) Tenés" = "You (singular) have." These two forms are very similar to each other, but aren't used together. By that, I mean that the countries that use "vos" don't use "vosotros" (at least to my knowledge).
ñ is a different letter in Spanish.
Nino is just not a word. Also,
ñ has a different pronunciation, which sounds roughly like "ni", so
niño is close to "ninio".
That said, many people don't type the "ñ" in their computers or cellphones, so Duolingo accepts "nino" as well.
