When Stadther uses two separate spellings Fairies and Faeries, is he referring to the same fairies? or is it faries?

Anyway, When Ana puts the jewels in the faries hands, is she giving them to all of the faries or just the flower faries? or some other faries? Remember that the Kootenstoopits don't get any jewels and neither do the Pickensrooters when Yorah tells them all to go get them. Just the flower faries pick up the jewels.
Both Yorah and Ana know that Kootenstoopits can't be trusted. So I doubt that Ana gave any of them Jewels. So should we just avoid the Kootenstoopits altogether?
