So a little while back I lost one of my keys to the car. I don't drive the car hardly at tall and today I pick up the other key and notice the trunk button has completely busted through. I'm going to buy a new case from Gm because it's about $80 bucks and swap the guts. Is their anything I can do with the new old case and new components to at least program the remote to lock and unlock with out paying the dealership.

Don't quite understand the question, but if you just need a case:

Uncut New Smart Remote Keyless Key Fob Replacement Case Shell for GM Pontiac GTO | eBay

$80.00 for a case only, is robbery.

Replacing the case shouldn't need any programming. If it does, you SOL.
You can't reprogram a used key.
If needed, you can get a NEW replacement fob and program it as per HP's link.
A new fob from the dealer should be around the $80.00 price. OR:

Also, I've had my remote act up and not function correctly. I put it in the ignition and pushed the buttons a few times and removed it. It
then, works correctly.

You can't program the remote without being able to put it in the ignition and turn it to the different positions. Have the key cut by a locksmith and use the procedure linked above to program the remote.

A locksmith that has the capability/equipment to cut center cut keys can do it. I've had them done by a locksmith. I spend very little time at the dealership with any vehicle once the factory warranty has expired.

You can buy replacement rubber button covers on eBay and not even have to take the FOB apart
