Make sure the rear wheel axle is snugged up against he dropouts in the frame and that the wheel is centered in the brakes. Also, check the seating of the shifter cable at each end, but most likely at the rear shifter, to make sure the jacket is inside the ferrule.
Of course, it is impossible to get a sense for how well maintained the bike is. Perhaps the shifting problem's appearance is not related to the wheel removal and may be something else like bad cables or cable housing. The cable should slide easily in the housing. Shift the bike to its lowest (easiest) gears in front and in back. Then, without moving the crank, manually tug on the rear shifter cable from the rear and push it in. Resistance is bad. Sometimes a bit of lube inside the housing will buy you some time. Use something thin and squirt a little into the end then cycle the cable in and out to distribute it.
If you don't have a bike repair stand, find a small tree with a stout, narrow, low horizontal branch about shoulder height and hook the front of your seat on it so you can spin the cranks and test the shifting. If it's hard to downshift the rear (pulling cable into the housing) it will likely not freely shift upward because the only froce pulling the cable out is the little spring in the derailleur.
Shift to the highest (smallest) cog and sight along the axis of the it and the two rear derailleur pullies. They should all be in the same exact vertical alignment. If they're parallel but not aligned you can adjust the barrel on the cable at the derailleur. Try a small turn then shift up and down while turning the crank to get the cable and shifter to settle where the new adjustment wants to be.
If you ride regualrly it would be worthwhile to find a local bike shop (LBS) and get to know them. They can teach you some self sufficiency in exchange for a little business from you.

I would try local bike store or the store that carries that brand of stroller.

There are nuts at each side of the axel, on which the wheel turns. These may have to loosened by a spanner or may have quick release levers. If there are levers pull them outwards from the wheel and you can then turn them to release the wheel. Let all the air out of the wheel. Then insert 2 levers under the edge of the tyre, about 6 inches apart and pull the tyre out over the rim of the wheel. Put in your finger and pull the rest of the tyre over the rim. Then lever the other side of the tyre over the same side of the wheel and remove the tube. Replace the tube ensuring that the valve for pumping is in place first. Replace the tyre as far as possible by hand and use the levers for the final few inches taking care not to trap the tube between the lever and the rim of the wheel as this could cut the tube. Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.

Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.
