Mine is peeling chrome, can the knob be removed with the purpose of replacing it? Or does the entire shifter stalk need to be removed?

I think you can pull it off, but it's not going to come easy, or necessarily in one piece. I think it's splined & press fit.

^ splined and press. Get a heat gun to warm it up, cracking it with some waterpump pliers will make it come off faster.
New one you want to get warm as well, have a soft faced hammer handy, heat it up, push it on as far as you can and whack the end with the hammer to seat it. DO NOT twist the new one to try and get it on.
