do listeners have a hole in their spirit web where a spren inhabits and transforms them?

Listener spirit webs are likely incredibly strange.

Less of a "Hole" and more of a Socket; it's not an unnatural missing piece so much as an innate ability to augment with accessory pieces.  It's like if a person where born with a hemalurgic spike in them, but had to go through a ritual to "invite" one of several types of Investiture Charge to inhabit it.  The main difference is that while a Spike is "Ripping a Hole" in the spiritweb which makes the person vulnerable to Shardic influence, the Gemheart is an entirely natural feature of the spiritweb.

from what little we get from the songs it does hint that shards could influence you when bonded with certain spren, maybe the higher spren

Agreed, though I see a difference from the Hemalurgic influence because with spikes they are ripping holes that any Shard can exploit regardless of what Charge is placed in the spike, whhereas the evidence suggests the Influence that the Songs were talking about was that if the spren is tainted by odium it give him (specifically) some influence over you.  The difference being that spikes make you vulnerable innately, whereas the Gemheart only makes you vulnerable if you let the wrong spren in, but just having one doesnt appear to give a shard any additional influence.
