Since this is the adoption category I assume you mean not the biological grandchildren but foster kids who have never been adopted. And no, they have no right at all to anything their foster family leaves behind unless they are mentioned in the will. If you mean biological children they inherit their parents who in their turn inherit their parents, your grandparents. So unless the grandchild is mentioned in the will or the parents are deceased, the grandchild will not inherit the grandparents.
This is called an open adoption. It allows the biological parents to select the adoptive parents and to be involved in their child's life after the adoption. The level of openness is agreed on before the adoption is completed. Sometimes it is letters, pictures, phone calls, and even visits.
No. Adoption removes the rights to the biological parents' estate.

Legal and lawful adoption is a process that ends in the final and irrevocable transference of all rights and responsibilities for a child from the biological parents to the adoptive parents. Open adoption is an agreement between adoptive parents and biological parents that addresses continuing contact between biological parents and the adopted child. This can take many forms, from regular letters to frequent visits. Open adoption does not alter the legality of the adoption, the finality and irrevocability, in any way.
With limited information it is possible to locate biological parents/grandparents via the internet at such sights as adoption.com. Look for reunion registries through which you can find biological parents if they want to be found.
In a closed adoption there is no contact between the biological parents and the child. They are allowed to try to contact the child when he is 18. In a open adoption the biological parents get letters and pictures from the adoptive parents and sometimes they get to see the child too. Unfortunately some parents decide to close the adoption after it has been finalized even though the said it would be open.

B. Two parents, biological children, and grandparents from both sides
If you know the name of his parents, perhaps look for their birth certificates? they should indicate who their parents were.
If the parents' rights have been terminated either by the court or voluntarily, and the child has been adopted, then the biological grandparents connection has also been severed and they can't seek access/visitation. However, there may be standing to intervene in the determination of custody BEFORE adoption has occurred. The only time grandparents are allowed to file suit for visitation is when there is a current, open suit for custody. Visitation is voluntary on the part of the adoptive parents if they believe that it is in the best interest of the child(ren).
