My fiance and i moved into an apartment, in which the area where the strikeplate is supposed to be has a huge "gash" in the wood so that you don't have to turn the knob to open the door - looks like someone once forced it open and ripped at the wood - and i have no clue how to fix it without completely replacing the frame. Any help?(Deadbolt works fine though.)

I would ask the landlord to have it fixed. This is probably damage that was caused by aprevious tenant and the landlord should have charged that tenant for the cost of repairs.
