    It seems that most Go utilities have been submerged into gopls, the LSP server. So a lot of older websites that suggest how to configure go-mode might be outdated, because of the cultural shift away from the unix-ish little, collaborative utilities approach. This means you will need a LSP client -- the Go project has some documentation on that. I'd strongly recommend Eglot, if you are uncertain what to use(0). This page explains how to install gopls with your Go toolchain.

    I haven't used Dash, so I don't know the specifics of what it works, but if it works like running pydoc or godoc or whatever Java has inside your text editor, here is a plugin for pydoc inside emacs and here's another for godoc (as part of a larger mode for go). I just tested godoc and it seems to work fine, if a little too basic.

    This question makes very little sense to be honest. Try using spacemacs. It has a go language server runner. Otherwise try this
