This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Working with workflows
I am a project admin of a specific JIRA Project. However, I can't Edit the screen, workflow, fields, transition in JIRA for this project
What access rights that I need to get for editing this specific project?
I got the system admin right today. However, when I change a status name(from "To Do" to "Problem description" in CAPA project workflow, all other projects are affected. I suppose this change is only applied to the CAPA project, since I did this change under the CAPA workflow setting. pls clarify..

Yes, a lot of changes will be global, or at least apply to shared settings. Have a look at two things:

My best guess is that you are sharing this workflow across many projects and and admin has edited it, adding the new status to it. So it appears in all the projects because, like everything else, it's a shared workflow.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
