Correct spelling, explanation: this form, replacing, is the correct one because the root word replace ends with e. In such a case, when creating a gerund form, this last e is omitted, so replace becomes replacing. For the same reason,
replaceing is a mistaken form.
Definition of replacing:
verb, gerund form of replace, to provide a substitute in the place of sth/sb

What do you think about replacing white walls with blue ones in our bedroom?
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
replaceing is an incorrect form because e from the end of the root replace should be skipped when adding -ing suffix, as in replacing. This is always happening in the case of verbs ending with e, therefore the correct form is replacing.
