What other word can I substitute for the second "y" of this sentence to make sense? "Ellos escucharon quejidos y cadenas desda arriba y inmediatamente Jose Dolores hizo..."

Thanks, desda was just a typo, but the e is what I needed. Don't know why I didn't think of that.

The same applies when "o" is followed by a word beginning with O, in which case the o changes to u.

"Una u otra."

Usa "e".

Thanks for pointing out what I should have pointed out (doh!). But "e" is in fact "y," and just an orthographic change, which is probably why I forgot to mention it. That is, the question makes it sound as if Taylor wants another word, whereas e and y are in fact the same word. It's the same situation with "a" and "an." They mean the same thing, and the latter is only used to make the sentence sound better.

I can't think of anything that would work. Why do you want another word?

They heard groans and the sound of chains from above and Jose Dolores immediately did...

By the way, "desda" should be desde.
