You can probably go to a junkyard, and steal the tumbler out of another cars ignition, just make sure that you have the set of keys to go with it. As well, if your ignition key is for your locks as well, make sure that you take those tumblers out of the door because you'll need those as well.

My ignition switch is either locked or frozen? key won't turn, steer wheel won't move,and gear shift want move


The key/ignition switch needs to be replaced. Very common in newer GM vehicles. The key either wont turn, wont go in, or the key wont release from the tumbler. Check with a local Chevy dealer to see if there has been a recall issued for this. But you will need to have it serviced regardless.
