If a ticket has elizer instead of Eliezer is it ok or do I need to call and change it? Domestic flights

Totally depends on the airport.

YMMV

In LGA security made an issue where the name on the ID was Sarah (maybe Sara, dont remember exactly), and the ticket said Sorah. Almost missed the flight going back to checkin.

+1 JFK they made me go back to check in and get a new ticket cuz they wrote sholo  instead of Sholom

Ticket is in maiden name, but ID has married name. on the outbound TSA delayed them...supervisor...sign here...
After delaying her, she was finally allowed through.

For the way back, is there any way to avoid this hassle?  (besides for getting a fully refundable ticket)

Call the airline, such a small spelling error should not be an issue.
Make stuff happen.

depends on the airline, usually a typo can be fixed.
