Downloaded video with yt-dlp and get sound file separate. |They won't merge. Message "malformed aac bitstream install FFMpeg to fix this automatically." I have ffmpeg in the same folder as yt-dlp.What do they mean install fmmpeg?
Also is there a way to join the video and audio and have them in sync?

What is the command you used for merging?
You can synchronize the audio and video with ffmpeg with the following command
ffmpeg.exe -i "movie.mp4" -itsoffset 3.84 -i "movie.mp4" -map 0:v -map 1:a -c copy "movie-audio-delayed.mp4"
There's probably, in all likelihood nothing wrong with the downloaded aac file. It's the way fmpeg is interpreting it and baulking at it.
With ffmpeg and ffprobe in the same directory as yt-dlp - in this instance try to download both the video and audio with ffmpeg, therefore giving it less opportunity to complain, thus:
Substitute your selections where I have used bv+ba for testing.
yt-dlp -f bv+ba --hls-prefer-ffmpeg "URL"
yt-dlp -f bv+ba --hls-prefer-ffmpeg "URL" --merge-output-format mkv
