What does this mean? For instance, do you mean you ran chsh, changing to /bin/tcsh (as defined in /etc/shells), then changing back to /bin/bash? This would have been the correct way.
The shell is defined in the last field of /etc/passwd. Type "getent passwd $USER" to identify the shell you are currently using. Run chsh to change your shell to your desired login shell.

I'm not quite sure what this means. The default Bash prompt will give you something like "bash-4.1$ "; is that what you mean? If so, that means you do not have the PS1 variable defined in your login profile. This is documented in the bash info manual (type 'info bash'), under Bash Startup Files.
Typically, this is already defined in /etc/profile or /etc/profile.d/. What distribution are you running?

That's because PS1 must be pre-defined in your shell environment when you log in.

If this is Bash, add the following entry to your $HOME/.bash_profile:
export PS1="\u@\h \u> "
