Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

When I start , the OSM is shown, however when I choose edit the display remains on the OS map instead of changing to satellite view. how do I get the display to satellite view?

Which Editor are you using please

If you're using iD (the default editor on openstreetmap.org), you have a "layers" icon alt text to select different backgrounds.

A rather complete documentation is here : https://learnosm.org/en/beginner/id-editor/

Does openstreetmap have access to Google Maps for editing?

This probably should be another question, but for short : no.
