There are some alternate names that I haven’t ever been credited as and I can’t seem to find a way to delete them or correct this error on my IMDb page. What’s the solution?

You have to edit the individual credit where the alternate name appears.
And you'll need evidence of the name used for that credit, namely a screenshot of the credit. You can post that image here, and link to it during the Edit (click the little box by Provide Explanation).

That name is associated with two credits on the page: an editor credit and one of the graphics episode credits.

As bderoes says above, you can edit those credits to remove the alternate name. If any of the credits don't belong to you, you can edit the name field to move them to another name page.
