If someone removed an axle half shaft then yes you wouldn't have a full 4x4 mode, it's like a vehicle without tires. As for the shifting problems, it's probably going to need a rebuild BUT I do recommend you buy 22301B-01K. This may actually fix the issue with the shifts if it doesn't then it's still something I would recommend you install if you want to prolong the life of the transmission.
