The shift lever has a very wide "throw" to change gears. In driving, the shifter works to change gears, but I have to hunt for the right slot and shift slowly. I was told there is a shift pack to resolve the problem

A detent is a notch or notches in a part used to keep a shifter (in this case) at a certain position. Be that an automatic or stick-shift. You can imply that the shift pattern on a stick-shift has detents for each gear as the shift lever locks and slides in and out of each position for that gear to work when the clutch is released. The detents on an automatic can resemble "steps" which engage a different gear or series of gears(drive) when a certain step is locked into position by a pressure bar or pressure lever.
Sometimes the pressure bar or pressure lever is spring loaded and your hand works against that tension to select a gear or function(drive). There may be an adjustment for the spring tension, or the spring is too weak and the shift assembly must be replaced.
With electronic shift solenoids, some of the shift assembly is different than with the old-style mechanical shifter. The action may be fly by wire with electronic shifts.
I do not know what you have, so there may be differences.
if it is s manual box remove the gear lever tower from the top of the box and see what damage was done to the bottom of lever and/or lever pivot pin in the tower. Remember normal gear boxes require a gentle shift to allow the syncro rings to work properly and if you want to do racing changes get yourself a specially built box.
the shift sinkcranizers are dry .may have to pull the shifter and use some white lithum grease on it work the shifter from gear to gear working in the grease drive the truck for about 25-30 miles and change trans fluid
Looks like your shifting lever bushing needs to be replace.
That loosenes when shifting is cause by the bushing that are already loose.
You could replace it by yourself by removing the shifting lever, a pivot bolt that holds the bushing and the lever.
Hope that helps you out!

shifter can be removed with shifter boot out of the way, and pushing down and turning round collar at base of shifter to the left or right, with shift lever out it should be easy to tell weather the bottom of shift lever is worn or broken off.
yea in order to use that function, ur shifter has to be set to manual mode (M). the "m" is to the left to drive position. when u put the car in drive just shift the shifter over to the left once and you'll see it on the dash
