Each manufacturer has a different size shower spout. As long as the fitting doesn't leak, put a flange up against the wall and if needed, use calking to fill the space. This is an aesthetic issue only.

Is this a question?

Most of those have a quarter turn plastic pie section at the top of the stem. It reverses for right or left (cold or hot) faucets. Turn off the water supplies, remove the top of the faucet and handles, put the pie shaped sections on opposite sides, reinstall the handles and turn the water supplies back on.

By replacing it

Get some Lock-tight formula to apply to the screw. Let it dry a few minutes after application. Naturally, after application of the solution, you have tightened the screw to its maximum. Do not be concerned about ever removing the screw as the material will loosens when you apply manual force.

The issue might be the tub diverter spout. Most such do not seal well. It is a matter of jiggling the spout knob. It should seal better with a little experimenting.

If your having major issues, I would try to locate the main on/off valves at your water heater and pump/cold water line in the basement. One the water is shut off, I would try to check if there is a proper seal...as required concerning the stem. It's probably on of the old gaskets that was not remove and doubled up. Happened to me. Good luck!

Make sure the flapper is seating properly. If you can't tell, put some food coloring in the tank part... you will see color in the bowl.
