I believe the reflector replacement is straightforward and only about $10-15 each:

Probably held-in with double-stick foam tape and can be replace like other stick-on trim, e.g., carefully remove by carefully running dental floss back and forth behind the reflector to cut/detach the reflector, clean off residue and put the replacement reflector into place (they typically come with the tape already on the reflector). Tedious and time-consuming, but straightforward. Works best if the temp is warm to loosen-up the tape and make it easier for the dental floss to cut through it. Might be helpful to use a hiardryer on it a bit before trying the dental floss.

Hard to tell from the photos whether the fake air inlet just needs to be popped into place, or if the prongs on the bumper or fake air inlet have been damaged.
