You can use a small amount of paint thinner and gently wipe with a MF. Go over with a light polish or cleaner/wax to bring the shine back. You shouldn't have any problems.

Depends on how bad it is. I've used Meguiar Paint Cleaner to remove paint from my bumper after this other car had bumped into me. It got the paint off pretty good. After getting the paint off, I recommend you polish then wax the same area to protect it.

I found using clay bar and hit it with some aggressive polish works great.
