I think they're call nut-serts and they take a special tool to install. You might try searching the internet.

That will work if you can get into the frame to hold the nut.

I have tack welded a 4" long machine screw to the side of the nut so that I can manuver it into position in the frame to reinstall the bolt on the bottom of the skid plate I hope this works

You can cold-chisel the old nutsert out though it's easier with an air tool. Then spot weld an insert you can get from Grainger into the hole.

Here's how... Transfer Case Weld Nuts - Write Up
