I feel I was taken off of a will to benefit other children. Can my name just be dropped that easily?

In general, yes.

If you are a legal dependent of your stepfather, you may have grounds for a claim.

If he helped to raise you from a young age, i.e. played a parenting role, you may have a claim IF your jurisdiction has a provides for adult chlidren. The province of British Columbia does, for example.

Yes, it can. While a blood relation child could challenge a will that cuts them completely out, stepchildren have no such rights. Often in remarriage, one spouse will leave their estate only to their children. For example, my MIL left her estate to her husband, and he left everything to her. So if she died first, he got everything, but his subsequent heirs were his children only. However, he did die before her, so she got everything and her subsequent heirs are her children only.
