if your tree, is a result of a bastard child where the mother gave the child her madian name, and the tree follows that madian name thoughout history, what dna test, would prove with the males line, before the incident.

second question, does the dna matches, use only dna information or does it pull from your tree too. what if you had information in your tree but its not untrue on the dna side, would it still match a dna member

If the child was male and you can find a direct male descendant of that child, then Y-DNA is the way to go. If not, if there are any females in the lineage then you will have to go with autosomal DNA.

No, your DNA matches are ONLY people who share enough DNA with you to meet the minimum criteria. Once a DNA match is established, by DNA only, some companies will then look at your tree and theirs to find possible connections of where your shared DNA comes from.

no, going the other way, trying to tied to her the mother fathers line, the decendant would have the y of the sperm donor, but want to tie to the mother madian name. tied to her father

Then your only option is autosomal DNA - that's the only one available from AncestryDNA, 23andMe, and MyHeritage. From FamilyTreeDNA, it's called "Family Finder". I recommend testing with AncestryDNA, then uploading the raw DNA data to FamilyTreeDNA (free upload, $19 to unlock full results), and MyHeritage (free). DNA Day is coming up (April 25) and there are normally sales going on for it, so keep an eye out.
