Question:

Why does Binyamain’s name sometimes have 2 yuds and sometimes 1?

Answer:

See Rashi Bereishis 35-18 that Binyomin was called Ben –yomin, to signify that he was born in Eretz Yisroel, whereas all the other brothers weren’t, and whenever the posuk want to bring out this point it says his name with two yuds.
