Water barely trickling out of tub faucet after one handle was pushed too far the wrong way. Can it be fixed?
Turn supply valves off, turn on tub valves to release pressure, then remove the handle on faulty valve. Check to see if it has a plastic cartridge. If so, it sounds like the rib was broken on the valve and it is out of alignment with ports in valve body. Take the cartridge out and take to your favorite home supply for a replacement. The cartridges have a key rib that fits into a slot so turning the handle turns the stem and not the whole cartridge. You might also find a black washer and spring under cartridge, it's a good idea to replace washer whenever cartridge is replaced also found at home supply

I have a moen bathroom double faucet and the hot water side is loose, how can it be tightened?
If by double you mean separated levers, there will be a nut and gasket/washer that needs to be tightened from under sink. Can be tricky as getting to underside of that area of sink is usually a tight area, and the nuts are good size. Most hardware stores will have a faucet nut wrench which has a swivel head for on and off and is designed to reach that area vertically. You might be lucky and have plastic nuts with wings that will allow you to tighten by hand. Word of advise, that area and related hardware can play havoc on the knuckles.
