Does anyone else hear a "bh" or "f" sound at the end of "inniu"? Is that dialectal, a remnant of an earlier form of the word, or just duo-wrongo?

I can't hear it distinctly in the examples on Teanglann, unless very faintly in the Munster example.

You are hearing it. It's a fairly standard Munster pronunciation, you'll hear it frequently on RnaG.

Can "aon rud" also simply mean "one thing"? Or would it have to be "aon rud amháin"?

is the pronunciation for today (inniu) correct ? Ending sounds like 'h'

It's a common Munster pronunciation - you can hear it on Munster examples at teanglann.ie and on fuaimeanna.ie

Is she creating can thus be correct

No, the Irish for "is she creating?" is an bhfuil sí ag cruthú?

Irish and English both have separate forms for the simple present and the present continuous. They are not interchangeable.
