Is Mondo Grass the same as Liropia? (I may have spelled Liropia wrong)
2 different ornamental grasses.
These articles have information on both types of grass.
I know it is winter and we are having hard freezes at night. My landscaper planted my mondo in late October and now it is jan 2018. When will it spread? It gets no traffic. I have not watered it lately. Should I .... with the temperatures and all? It has mulch. Maybe I should refresh the mulch. What do you think?
Whether you mulch or not is up to you. It isn't completely necessary, unless you just want it for looks. The grass will return and start to spread in spring through early summer when it starts to flower. Watering should only be done during very dry spells.

Thinking about planting some and heard that using seeds are not a good idea because of the age of the seeds when u recieve them. Any information u can give me on the subject would be appreciated,thanks
Mondo Grass is not an easy plant to grow from seed. Germination rates will be better with fresh seed, but certainly starting seeds from a seed source can be done.
Germination rates are generally published on the back of seed packets or in the written information on the seeds.
Here is a link with more information.
I am not much of a gardener, but I have heard you can seperate mondo grass and replant the pieces to thicken up the planted area. If possible, could you show me what to show my husband to do :o)
Most ornamental grasses need to be divided every 2 to 3 years.
Planted 2 years ago in full sun, zone 9.
They are not tolerant of full sun. This is a shade grass, and at most, partial sun tolerant. Fungal issues can also plague these, too, during wet weather. This article will help you to care for these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/mondo-grass/mondo-grass-care.htm

Seems to be very difficult to remove with strong root system
You are right that this is a difficult plant to get rid of. Here's a link to an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/groundcover/monkey-grass/removing-monkey-grass.htm. If it's out of control, you may want to contact a university extension service in your area for help.
