This is a discussion about して

Form of する

It should be noted that して is the gerund form of する which is why it basically means "doing"

Maybe, but that's the job of a grammar, not a dictionary. Same reason that the entry on the で particle doesn't explain it's the connective form of だ (calling it a gerund seems weird to me, since it's not a verbal noun, ~の or ~のこと fits the meaning of "gerund" a lot more, but it's generally pointless trying to match up Japanese grammar to English grammar terms, better to just describe how the forms function in Japanese, like "connective form" )
