you will have to replace the ball assembly with a repair kit
1 turn the water off under the sink (hot and cold)
remove the handle ( you may need an allen head wrench to remove a hex screw or you may have to take a channel lock pliar and unscrew achrome
nut over the ball mechanism
after the handle comes off there is usually some type of lock nut that you must remove to remove the ball mechanism

Yes - This is an easy (though not widely known) diy fix! Remove the cover of the faucet handle (may pop off if crystal type or use a screwdriver to remove the screws) inside there is a scald guard safety mechanism - using a flathead screwdriver, turn the guard some the left. There should be a guide so that you do not turn the water up too hot. If there is not, you may need to consult a plumber or supplier in order to adjust the hot to a moderate temperature.
Hope this helps! ;)

Grasp the base of the handle under the lever by hnad and turn it counterclockwise. If the whole valve turns, you will need to hold the valve from underneith the sink with a wrench while you unscrew the handle base on top. It is difficult to see, even with the Finial owners manual from Kohler how the two join.

From what you have described it sounds like the stem in which the handle rests on is stripped and allowing to move from side to side.
Remove handle it has a set screw in the side of it and turn water off. Check the stem may be in need of replacing or the retaining nut that holds the stem down to counter top may be in need of tighting.
