There's also probably some decent youTube videos for 'beginners for bodywork", which may also be helpful. Here's a link that may get you started:

However, stay away from any suggested 'fix' of just filling up the entire deformation with a big old blob of Bondo. And the key to all good bodywork is the proper preparation. Take your time, do it right, and you should only need to do it once. This is a relatively straightforward 'boo boo' to deal with. Keep us posted on how it goes, and drop back by with any more questions.

DIY Paint match will be the magic here.
From the photo, that looks to be the 'Pewter' GM color. That can be confirmed with the RPO codes sticker in the glovebox. The code for the 'Light Pewter Metallic' paint is U382E with the basecoat/ clearcoat BC/CC. I use the gray (sandable) primer as the basecoat prior to finish coats. I've had reasonably good results with the Dupli-color paint for smaller touchup work. That rattle can paint is usually available at the local parts stores like Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilley's, etc.
