Welcome to the TO.COM board Father Kaiii

The knob should just unscrew... Easy peasy but, if you're
having problems, you might tr a pair of vise grips on the shaft
(below the knob) and a pair of water pump pliers (channel
locks?) on the actual knob itself and use your STRENGTH!!!!

To prevent either the shaft or knob from getting damaged by
the teeth of these pliers wrap both (shaft and knob) with
some cloth...

As far as interchangeable short (throw) shifters, I don't believe
any were made for the Tercel. There were several advertised
for the Tercel back in its hayday but was never quite sure if
they were REAL short shifters or shifters that were simply cut
down. Look through TO.COM's classified section and you might
find one for sale.

Good luck and again, welcome to the board...

Alfradio is right that it just unscrews.

Many guys have used aftermarket Corolla short shifter shafts as short throw replacements.

Something like this would probably work.

I use a generic eBay Corolla short shifter in my Paseo. A buddy of mine rotated the pivot shaft on the main shaft so that the bend on the main shaft was toward the rear of the car, instead of the passenger or driver seat (whichever way it was that I cannot remember).

Search for Qballicious' short shifters for more ideas/info...

Thank you for the info guys, I'll try at it that way. I'll also look into corolla shifters. When spring comes around I'm thinking of a 5efe swap...
