Look to the right of the N and M and COMMA and PERIOD keys, for the SLASH key.

Below the COMMA and PERIOD keys, is there a key labelled ALT(ernate) GR(aphic)? If so, hold that key down, press the key to the right of the PERIOD key, and press the ALT GR key, and see if a SLASH is displayed.

The delete problem you described sounds application specific. For example in Windows Explorer, if you just click on the Delete key, you will only send the deleted object into the Recycle Bin where it can be restored if required. If you want to really delete an item, you click on Shift-Delete key.

Check the Speech settings in System Preferences. Your delete key may have been selected as a Listening Key. Disable Speakable Items. See if that helps.
