I would be surprised if anyone would notice. Your tickets may be checked but they shouldn't be compared with your passports.

They may well ask for some sort of ID - they do for normal NS tickets printed at home. Any picture ID will do, but a passport would be best. I very much doubt one letter would give a problem though - just explain you misspelled the name if they ask.

Not necessary. I drove myself nuts because of mistakes in names of some Easyjet tickets no one noticed anything , I also was worried that they all had come out with Mr. instead of Ms.
no problem, I also worried about the exact size of the carry on, mine was perfect but most passengers carried larger that the requested size. Nothing happened. Good luck.
In summary : to worry too much is not a good idea.
