It sounds as though what you want to do is this:  Create a Flow the runs when an item has changed that checks to see if the column with the drop down value is not empty and the value of the approver is empty - you could also use a trigger filter for this rather than a condition.  If the condition returns as true, then insert the value from the Last Modified By column in the approver column.

Let me know if you need an example.

I think only way to find this out is who modified the list item.. 

 

Go through below video of April Dunnam where she explains a new action that can track changes to the ListItem and can tell if a particular column changed or not.
