Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima
There are a few things you can do without needing too much money to repair it. First good old trick, as amazing as it seems, would be to use some good Epoxy glue as it is strong enough to glue metal to metal and plastic to metal with surprising strength. Although not all epoxys are the same and a more specialised epoxy formulated for car repairs will help. The best bet to go and get some will be to visit your local parts store and ask their expert if they have any epoxy specially made for metal and plastic. The other quick solution would be to get yourself 2 to 4 self tapping metal screws depending on the size of the spoiler's post and how much good plastic there is left on it to screw into. I would suggest using at least some household bathroom silicone though and put some between the spoiler's post and the trunk lid to seal the old OEM screw holes so that you don't end up with a swimming pool in your trunk. Then just screw the self tapping metal screws from inside the trunk lid being careful to align the screws at the right place so not to just make another useless hole next to the spoiler. A good trick to lign up easily enough will be to use the old screw holes as guides, or if you want more precision, you can also measure the width and length of the spoiler's post and trace the dimensions inside the trunk lid with a tire crayon or something similar using the screw holes as guides again, as it will be easy to wash it off once you are done.
