Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina
The stub shaft spline or the steering wheel shaft spline is stripped and needs to be replaced.
Sounds like someone had the wheel off and stripped the splines on removal/installation at one time.
You can try to improvise a key way slot system on the shaft but you have to be certain it is secure, this will save you a lot of time and money, unless the steering wheel is at fault then r&r the wheel and try to locate a used one when installing it be sure you line up the spline notches.

This sounds like a wheel bearing close to complete disintegration. I advise you get the front end free of the ground so you can check for it by grasping the wheel and attempting to rock it from side to side. It isn't hard to imagine that if it is indeed that worn, that the wheel could separate possibly taking the axle and CV joint with it. Don't take any chances - it's urgent that you find the problem quickly.

check the belt on the PS-pump. Then on top of the steering sector box is a nut with a screw driver slot of a allen head slot. lossen the nut, & tighten the screw or allen slot by turning the slot counter clock wise, then tighten the nut back down. this should take the slack out of the steering wheel. Oh, check the fluid level in the PS-pump resivoir tank.
