Incorrect NUMGRP and NUMELT keywords

The addresp tool is not updating the NUMGRP nor the NUMELT keywords in the output file to match the actual values in the MATRIX's N_GRP and N_CHAN columns. It is simply copying those keywords from the 1st file to the output file. These incorrect values have shown to cause problems with XSPEC v 12.11.0.

Incorrect RSP RMFs

RSP RMFs, those that are supposed to include the ARF, are incorrect. Users should not use type=rsp.

Bad warning when directory does not exist

The tool will return an unhelpful error message

# addresp (CIAO):
ERROR: failed to ariet ARF ->dm: [ftDatasetCreate]: FITS error 105 

when the output file cannot be created because the directory does not exist.
