Synonyms of "Contract" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I'll draw up the contract. and I'll draw up a contract. ?
A: In real life, these two terms are used pretty much interchangeably. There's only a very slight difference in nuance but if this is just everyday speech I wouldn't even worry about it.

"I'll draw up THE contract"
This implies that the contract already exists or a format for the contract already exists. "The" is referring to one specific contract that you have in mind already.

Example:
A: "Here is my identification card."
B: "Great! Thank you. Now I'll get the contract from the back room. It'll just be a moment."

"I'll draw up A contract."
This implies that a contract is yet to be created or doesn't exist yet.

Example:

A: “Now that we have discussed the legality of everything, can you help me create a contact?"
B: “Sure. Once I draw up a contract for you everything will be good to go!"

Again the overall nuance is so small. I hope this helps! :)

Q: What is the difference between once you sign,you can't cancel the contract. and once you've signed,you can't cancel the contract. ?

Sign is future so once you're doing it you can't cancel.

Signed is past so once you've already done it you can't cancel.

In this context it means practically the same thing
Q: What is the difference between There is a contract that is susceptible of modification. and There is a contract that can be modified. ?
A: There really is no distinct difference. The first sentence: “There is a contract that is susceptible of modification” is a more complex way of saying the second sentence. But personally, the first sentence is awkward

A better and more professional way of saying this: There is a contract that is likely to be modified
