This is the only blemish on the car that I would like to repair.
Recomendations or advice are welcome.

Thank you,

I would start by polishing out the scratches and scuffs and see how it looks.
I would also remove the bumper and repair the fastener.
That's about it for a DIY repair.
It's $500 to $1000 if you take it to a body shop.

Any how to links on removing the cover or associated components?

Bumper covers are a snap on component. You will see a series of plastic clips/screws/snap fasterners around the perimeter. You may have to remove some trim pieces to see them.
Pry up the internal pin and the prongs retract allowing removal of the clip. I'll see if I can find a picture of them.
You may have to lie down on you back under the rear of the car to pull some of them. Wear eye protection, grit will fall on your face.
This is for an Accord but all bumper covers use similar fastener technology.

Right at that corner is a bolt. I bet it bent. You probably just need to change it and bend the bracket.
