What does som make here? What's wrong with 'av vad är rättvist'?

It’s a relativiser. You don’t use it in this English sentence, but it’s a relative clause so it’s literally ”what which is fair”. Think of it as ”that which is fair” but with ”what”.

Can we say the same sentence with no "som"?

I'm going to struggle to remember to put that in.

Does Swedish need "som" in this sentence to express "whatever," as in "vad som helst"? If so, why drop "helst"?

No. It is not a shortening of "vad som helst".

I was marked wrong for "We have different definitions of what is right." with a correct suggestion of "We have different definitions of what is just." Not close enough?

alternate correct(?) "We have different definitions as to what is fair."

Given that is sentence is in the science topic, can 'rättvis' mean fair in the probabilistic sense, like a fair coin or a fair die.
