Ydw, dw i'n hoffi dŵr cymraeg.

(probably wrong...)

Almost! It's:

Ydw, dw i'n hoffi dŵr Cymreig "Yes, I like Welsh water"

Ydw, dw i'n hoffi dŵr Cymru "Yes, I like Welsh water" (lit. "the water of Wales")

Not:

Ydw, dw i'n hoffi dŵr Cymraeg "Yes, I like Welsh-speaking water"

Several straightforward ways are outlined in the very first set of course notes - https://www.duolingo.com/skill/cy/greet1/tips-and-notes

To see how to find the course notes generally, go to https://forum.duolingo.com/topic/924/hot and read the discussion 'Course tips and notes'. The 'duome' link there is useful for browsing all the notes in one place. We recommend reading the notes for each new section as you start it.

Dych chi'n and wyt ti seem to mean the same thing?

The difference between chi and ti is explained in the course notes. For example - https://www.duolingo.com/skill/cy/Present-3/tips-and-notes

I put "dach chi'n hoffi dwr?" but got typo message that it should be "dych" but thought North Wales spelling was accepted

Unless you say which type of question it was and exactly what your complete answer was, there is no way to tell what the problem might have been.

In translations, either dych chi or dach chi can be used for 'you are'.

dŵr needs a circumflex accent on the ŵ.
