How, then , are exorcists selected though? Given the current dearth of them. should priests willing to perform this task b given more freedom to do so?  Or does the Church do the whole thing of waiting for "the call."?

They wind up in the situation through various reasons and not all exorcists are particularly good at it.  It's a humble priests with his head on straight that can simply say he won't succeed at exorcism when he knows what's involved. 

There was a very ad hoc approach in which exorcists would mentor the assisting priests and sift through and find the ones who were suited towards it.  Bishops often simply assign someone to it, lucky or unlucky depending on the selection. 

Fr. Amorth has worked very hard in organizing and structuring the need and training for exorcists since it has become more and more apparent of the need for it.

Matt Baglio's book "The Rite" deals with a lot of the modern circumstances.  (far different from the movie)
