You should be able to buy some replacement screws, they allways break, the bottom cover may assist in drawing air threw the radiator, if in a cool climate should be ok.

While backing out of my driveway over a pile of snow, a piece of black plastic under the car directly behind the front bumper was bent forward and is now dragging over curbs and on low surfaces. I tr

Probably yes.
You probably damaged one of the baffles or road shields that protects the bottom of the engine compartment.
You can remove it, but it should be replaced as soon as you can find one. The shields protect the belts and other components from road debris, and also helps to direct air thru the radiator.

A plastic protective cover fell from the bottom of the car.

If you're talking about the plastic splash guards that bolt on only on the underside of the car beneath the engine, you can bolt it back on by adding washers/flat spacers to the screws so that the splash guard doesn't pull off of the bolts again.

92 VW Jetta ran great one day and wouldn't start again. Daughter ran it out of gas, changed the plugs, put gas and gas line anti freeze still nothing. thinking fuel filter, are there 2 filters? and where...

First, you should Make sure that is the problem. Usually if your filter is clogged enough to kill the car, if you wait 10 to 15 minutes the car will restart. The fuel will eventually seep thru the filter. You more likely have a relay or fuel pump problem if it is fuel. Try removing the air filter and spraying carb cleaner into the intake, if it is a fuel problem, it will start. If it is a spark problem it will not. Most vehicles have a filter inline about half-way between the tank and the engine underneath the car. If you jack the car, trace the 2 lines from the fuel tank tds. the engine. There will probably be a cover to protect the filter.

Rear passenger fell into the door

You need to remove the handles, there should be small covers blocking the screw, remove these, then gently pull by the bottom of the cover, you should feel the clips holding the cover to the metal frame of the door. Remove them all round and push the cover up so the window seal jumps out from the rail. Should be easy.

Hit a pot hole and now the front of car is squeaking. 2003 Alero.

Could be the wheel cover (if equipped) git a little bent against the wheel itself. Try removing cover and see if sound is gone.
