Biologically, the grandchild is a step-grandchild to the grandparent that had no children. In matters of the heart, however, the grandchild is whatever the grandparent feels it is.
Examples of three generations in a family include parent, child, and grandchild; or great grandparent, grandparent, and parent.
Unless the grandparent is the legal guardian of the grandchild, or if the mother is still a juvenile, the grandparents have absolutely no responsibility to the grandchild.
It is possible that a grandparent can get joint custody when a grandchild has a legal guardian. It will ultimately be up to the judge over the case.
For most situations a grandchild is immediate family. It may be more limited for hospital visitation.
Yes, in that case your grandchild would also be your fourth cousin twice removed. But that relationship is rather minor compared to the grandparent/grandchild relationship. It can readilly be ignored.

Your child and your sister's child share a common grandparent and are first cousins. Your grandchild and your sister's grandchild share a common great grandparent and are second cousins. There is a generation out of synch, so they would be second cousins once removed.
Descendants are relatives of a person that down from one generation to the next. Parent to child to grandchild to great-grandchild. As you can see, the direction is a descending one. This is best illustrated using the standard family tree depiction of a person's relatives. A person's children and grandchildren and so on are shown one below the other in a descending direction. The opposite of a descendant is an ascendant. This is a person's parent, grandparent, great-grandparent and on in an ascending order.

Yes, a grandparent, or another relative, can apply for guardianship if the parents' rights have been terminated or with the consent of the parents.

If they are an adult, or turn a minor over to family services.

Sure. No different then doing it for your kids. But, be aware, YOU could be liable if the Grandchild gets sued in an accident as YOU are the legal owner.
