I would appreciate it if you may respond to or comment on the differences or applications of "thereto" and "theretoward" in modern writings or provide other single words that would be of similar use. Thanks in advance for your time!

Both 'thereto' and 'theretoward' are archaic. They are hardly used at all in natural English speech or writing currently.
'Thereto' however is used often enough in legal writing:
and acts as a pronoun for a prepositional phrase with 'to'. In modern English it could be replaced with 'to it'.
'Theretoward' is just not used. It's supposed meaning should be derivable as more specific than 'thereto' ('toward something' is more specific than 'to something') but it just doesn't occur in legal writings.
