How can I add shortcode functionality to a WordPress theme that doesn't support shortcodes?

Your theme has to be removing the shortcodes.
If that doesn't do it, the theme is probably doing something odd with the post content-- like bypassing the normal WordPress functions. And fixing that is going to take a lot more information.
If your theme doesn't include [shortcodes] out of the box they can be added by creating them in the functions.php file.
Here is a basic shortcode to get you started:
I could have also added the divider class to my stylesheet but for purposed here I left it in the function.php file.
Then in your post/page content area all you need to do is type in [divider] and it will render the div as you have styled it.
