Question for a jew or anyone who can answer this question.

 

Why do I see Channukah spelled in different ways either like that or Hannukah.

There are actually 16 ways to spell it in English, because English has more letter combinations than Hebrew, and the "ch" is actually a more gutteral sound, not like chair:

Hanuka

Hanukah

Chanuka

Chanukah

Hannuka

Hannukah

Channuka

Channukah

Hanukka

Hanukkah

Chanukka

Chanukkah

Hannukka
