The diverter is supposed to leak a little bit, so it will disengage after you turn off the water. If the water is leaking out a little, that's normal. But if it is really leaking out you may need to replace the entire spout.

The water stops at the spout .You can replace your tub spout with one that dosnt have a diverter. It isnt neccisary though ,the one you have is fine,jest dont pull down on the diverter.

The spout can easily be replaced...
Check for a set screw underneath back at the wall...
If no set screw then simply twist the spout of by turning CCW...
Then find a replacement spout at your local HD, Lowes< or hardware and reinstall the new one...
The replacement spouts are so cheap that it is not worth trying to fix the old one..

that is the way they are made. they are pressure balanced to reduce the risk of scallding.
however there is an adjustment that will allow a little more hot water. if you remove the handle, there is a small plastic disk, remove that, under that you will see a small ring with what looks like gear splines... pull out slightly and turn counter clockwise a few notches. reinstall the plastic disk and test.

if you don't get enough hot water, adjust again. only adjust a couple of notches at a time. you don't want to scald yourself in the shower.

I'm assuming the leak is in the wall somewhere between the on/off lever or knob and the shower head. It is a good chance that it is the mixing-valve. It could also be where the shower head screws into the drop-eared 90*. If it is the mixing valve, it is either ruined, or a bad seal that might be replaceable. If it is busted piping the wall will have to be opened up to replace it. Good chance that the arm to the shower head is leaking at the threads where it screw into the wall. Good luck.

The hole is designed to let water out instead of going back into your wall. The spout needs to be taken off (unscrewed usually by hand) and tephlon tape needs to be put on the threads coming out of the wall. After this is done, screw the spout back on. Should be all set.

If this is a single lever faucet, they have a plastic "geared "peice that is adjustable so the water can be very hot at a sink but will allow the
shower / tub to be set at a lower mixing temperature to prevent scalading someone. to get to it remove the center cap and remove the screw from the center and remove the outer knob that sets the hot cold mix, the "gear" peice is there, set it left or right by one tooth at a time and check it till you get the disired temperature, you can remove it totaly but then it will get as hot as the water heater puts out.

There is an allen screw on the bottom of the spout. IF you do remove it then check the 0-rings for wear. Replace if necessary.

Open the battery case and realign the batteries with the positive and negative poles in the right positions according to the layout in the battery compartment. Close the battery compartment. Make sure it locks completely before continuing.

Locate the reset button, if any, on or near the battery compartment, after changing out batteries.

Push the red reset button to reset the faucet.

Test the faucet to ensure the reset corrected the problem.

Not all automatic faucets have red reset buttons. Some faucets just require inserting new batteries or realigning the batteries in the compartment to complete a reset. on the faucet. Check the instructions that came with your automatic faucet or locate the user's guide online at the manufacturer's website.
