Do I have a dislocated shoulder if I can't throw without a weird loose sensation?

In brief: Not necessarily.

You may have other damage i the shoulder, for example a labral tear. Or it could be something much less complex, like a tendinitis.
See an orthopedic shoulder specialist for an accurate assessment.

In brief: No

There can be many problems associated with a loose sensation such as labral tears, slap tears, biceps problem. A dislocation would keep you from moving the shoulder altogether. This is something that could not be easily diagnosed without being seen.
