Nevermind, i'm just confusing myself. Now I understand what I misunderstood. The implied volatility surface of a prices of calls generated by a stochastic volatility model will not be constant since the implied volatility is found using the Black-Scholes model. The Black-Scholes model and a stochastic volatility model of course disagree on prices, and hence ...

I assume you work in the Black Scholes framework. Then, \begin{align*} P(S_0,K,T) = Ke^{-rT}\Phi(-d_2)-S_0\Phi(-d_1), \end{align*} where \begin{align*} d_1 &= \frac{\ln\left(\frac{S_0}{K}\right)+\left(r+\frac{1}{2}\sigma^2\right)T}{\sigma\sqrt{T}}, \\ d_2 &= \frac{\ln\left(\frac{S_0}{K}\right)+\left(r-\frac{1}{2}\sigma^2\right)T}{\sigma\sqrt{T}}= ...

The first part of your question: $\frac{\partial y}{\partial S} = \frac{\partial ln S}{\partial S} = \frac{1}{S}$ $ \frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial S \partial y} = \frac{\partial}{\partial y} \frac{\partial V}{\partial S} = \frac{\partial}{\partial y} (\frac{\partial y}{\partial S}\frac{\partial V}{\partial y})= \frac{\partial}{\partial y} (\frac{1}{ S}\frac{\...
