I need help on transforming a throw type bedspread (king) into a fitted spread with split corners. Their is a headboard and footboard OR help/guidance with sewing a new bedspread. I know there are attached sides to a bedspread top but is there a way to accomplish this with a throw style? Will I need to recut the spread, etc.?

I can't speak about the spread but always have to make a split in dust ruffles at the footboard of an antique iron bed and higher wooden beds. If it is a purchased comforter set, I split the dust skirt where needed when on the bed by marking and hem so it will not ravel and accomodate the leg. If I am making the dust skirt,I make it with a divide and have the sides wrap a couple of inches around the end panel. I don't do anything to the top as it and the spread stop at the top of the bed. I have not had to cut my spreads as they are comforter size and just tuck in at the foot. If all else fails , you might consider doing a tailored dust skirt using what you cut off and a second fabric reducing your spread to comforter size which I have done before. Antique beds are taller ( I have several)and have legs so I have tried all sorts of things through the years to adapt purchased sets if daughters wanted those on occasion or when I did not want to make the entire set which I prefer to do. Maybe you could use some binding on your spread at the corners and get a quick fix at the foot board area. One of my beds requires nothing at the foot except a tuck under and small overhang at the sides as the sides and footboard(closed to the floor are meant to show) . Good luck with your project.

Most home dec books and probably somewhere online have this info for a tailored spread or even a purchased pattern. You might want to buy coordinating or matching fabric and cord to make covered piping to add strength to your seams if you go this route. You can also look closely at a purchased one at a friends or a thrift shop to see how you need to remake it. I made my often used sham pattern from measuring a discarded one I liked. I hope any of my rambling is helpful. Just go for it when you decide what you need to do.

Is this what you have in mind (view B)?
bedspread drawings
The side panels wrap around at the foot of the bed and are attached by a stay made from twill tape or something similiar. I made a tailored bedspread for my DSIL using the tailored bed skirt as a guide (her bed has a footboard). I didn't want there to be a gap underneath the top layer. Here are some pics:

DSIL says the bedspread split corners fit her bed perfectly. I haven't seen it yet as she lives about three hours away. Anyway, if you like either of these versions, let me know if I can help walk you through the process.
