The rate of change in the spacetime metric increases as you reach the surface, but will start to decrease at some point as you approach the center of mass which results in a decrease in gravitational force. Correct?

Sounds about right to me.

Gravitational acceleration which distorts time and space always increases down to the center of mass. Correct?

The thing that distorts time and space is the energy/momentum of the matter (in this case the planet). This is the source of the distortion.
