Is there any way that I can get auto-correct on my iPhone 4S to stop changing the word "Yo" to "To?" I have tried adding a keyboard shortcut for "Yo" as well as adding Spanish to my International Keyboards, but its still happening.

Unfortunately, Apple hasn't relegated any control of auto-correct functions to the user (natively), and it isn't possible to add or remove words that it auto-corrects - other then using the shortcuts like you mentioned, which don't work for everything.
