I can remember saying that too but we were both mishearing "yn oes oesoedd".

Could this be translated as 'forever'? If not, what is the correct welsh for that?

A good on-line English to Welsh dictionary is geiriaduracademi.org. Perhaps a better both-ways one for learners is gweiadur.com, but you need a userid and password - send a mail to info@gweiadur.com and ask for one.

am byth is quite common for 'for ever'.

As in "charcar", neu happy for life, after e.e Priodi?

Yes i.e "Bydd o yn y carchar am oes" (He'll be in prison for life). Note that it's "Carchar" not "Charcar".
