I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
Well, I'll try ;-)
i want to replace my shift boot, but it seems like its glued or something in place. can i just wrip it out and place some double sided tape or something to hold the new one in place? what should i do?
It's not glued, or at least it shouldn't be. The base of the shift boot is wrapped around a metal frame which clips into the center console from underneath. This means to remove the boot properly you should remove the center console and access from underneath. This is fairly simple to do, there's just a few screws holding it in.

As for getting a new one, you could remove the one you have and take it to some leather shop and have them make a new one using your old one as a pattern. It should be fairly trivial for them and shouldn't cost much at all. Get them to do your center console lid as well while you're at it.
