It sounds like you would need to use the copula here:

Xのがじょうずだ or です

But the examples only have it for です and not for だ. Is that a spoken language phenomenon or is this usage completely correct grammatically?

上手だ。 is grammatically correct but I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone use it. If they want to say it casually they just say 上手 as it is.
