Threads missing, screws have nothing to grab

I am doing my first repair and learning quite a bit, however some of the female bases that screws go into are missing. There is a large hole that looks like a press fitting with female threads would go in. Am I wrong and if not can those fittings be purchased, also how do I prevent them from falling out?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
