the lower joints are pressed into the lower arm from the bottom, and they are in TIGHT, try suppporting the control arm under the spring mount and banging it out with a heavy hammer or at least loosten it a bit, the new one must be pressed in, make sure it goes in even all the way the lip must be flush, grind the rivets from the upper and install the new one with bolts supplied, its a lot of work for a diy

Ball joints just dont "fall off". Ball joints should be easily available. I'm sure the dealer can get any part you need. You may need other pieces. Have a RELIABLE shop check it over, your life is at risk, dont try cheap fixes.

theres 2 ways too fix that!! one is get some brass shiw stock it comes in a roll get about .005 thick! wrap several layers around the knuckle pin where is goes into the socket and then tigthen it up that will remove the play also you can heat the socket with a torch and then take a hammer and shrink the hole opening but if you call beards salvage in tulsa okla they can and will sell/ship you one
