Netflix has episode 12 of season 3 listed as ‘Witch Switch’ and episode 13 ‘Ethel Hallow to the Rescue’

The show is a co-production between CBBC, ZDF, and Netflix, but I believe according to site rules that the CBBC takes precedence. You've given no sources, please be sure to do so in future requests.

I'm not in the UK and the BBC geoblocks some listings, but this is what I could piece together:

March 18 2019, CBBC aired "The Broomstick Uprising" (All networks are in agreement until this episode)
https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl9r/2019/03/18

March 25 2019, CBBC aired "Ethel Hallow to the Rescue Part 1 and 2" - it's not clear to me if this is a double length episode or two episodes. It's listed as one on the schedule linked below.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl9r/2019/03/25

March 30 2019, CBBC aired "Witch Switch" followed by "Ethel Hallow to the Rescue"

My source was Netflix - https://www.netflix.com/title/80130521

It’s like it was on season 2 the last two episodes are together but they have separate names. CBC probably changed the names better to suit the episode plots

Just do it how season 2 was put in.

Episode 12: Witch Switch (1)
Episode 13: Ethel Hallow to the Rescue (2)

As I said before, I believe according to site rules that the CBBC takes precedence and the listing should reflect how that network first aired the episodes. The Netflix listing is therefore not relevant.

Yes but it is a Co-production.

And as you said earlier they first showed Ethel Hallow to the Rescue Part 1 and 2, but then they changed the names of the episodes and aired it as Witch Switch and Ethel Hallow to the Rescue.

As I said before, they probably changed it to fit the plots of the episodes. I’ve watched all the episodes on Netflix and if you said episode 12 was Ethel Hallow to the Rescue, it wouldn’t make sense because of the plot of the episodes.

I believe that they wanted it to be a part one and part 2 but it doesn’t have a ‘to be continued’ after episode 12.
