I moved a sim into another sim's household and I want to turn them from roommates to mother and child but I either get a "cannot edit pre-existing sim or the only options I get are "sister/brother, roommate or wife/husband." I changed their ages and the cheats are on both testingcheats true and cas.fulleditmode but it still doesn't give me the parent/child option.

These relations must be set before the game starts and later unless you have MCCC mod, nothing can be done.
But this can be solved differently.
You can save all these sims to the library. Enter with these sims in the CAS outside the game and set these relationships between them.
Switch to a random family in order to save the game and remove the family you played from the game. Then enter this family from the library again into this game on an empty plot. They lose all friends and money but their careers and skills will stay. You can add money to them with the motherlode code and put them in their old home.

relationship.add_bit <yoursimID> <targetsimID> <relationshipBit>
So, if your grandchild ID is 123 and grandparent is 789, it would look like this:
relationship.add_bit 123 789 family_grandchild
That being said, I have no idea if this cheat works anymore. A lot of cheats (like the skill cheats) were taken out of the game a few months ago. There is a mod out there that will re-enable them.
