I'm not sure why this happens. Make sure that the first line of the
included appendix contains the \addtocontents line I gave you (i.e.
not in the main document) and it will work as you want.

If you mean just for the appendix, I'm not sure.  For the titles in
general, you would need to mess around with the titlesec package.

Something like:

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]{\filcenter}{\bfseries\Huge\chaptertitlename\
\thechapter}{1pc}{}
