Why I can only type 15 letters in one line?

You probably have the right margin set there.
When you get to that point press but don't hold the mar rel key space to the location for the right margin press the R margin key.

Olympia Startype 3 occasionally types double vertical line and spacing is changing between letters

Check the printwheel for any broken or bent spokes. vertical lines means the wheel is between letters so either a problem with printwheel or something preventing wheel from turning normally.

How to move the space to the right side of the typewriter

I'm guessing that you want to move the R. margin. Go to the margin press but don't hold the mar rel key space or backspace to desired location, press R. mar key.

If you mean that the paper dosen't space up you may have the lower feed rolls open (lever on top R. hand side)
