I'd recommend the following which is part of my standard config:

cd /private/etc
cp paths paths.d/999-macOS
mv paths paths.orig
echo "/opt/local/bin"      >  paths
echo "/opt/local/sbin"     >> paths
echo "/opt/local/bin/bash" >> shells
echo "/opt/local/bin/zsh"  >> shells

you can now do "chsh -s /opt/local/bin/bash [user]
