First Wash the area, than take a dremel and with the wire wheel @ high speed, grind off the bistering and feather as best into good paint. Next rough up the area with some 100 grit sand paper. Use body filler (bondo 2 part filler) and smooth over with plastic blade. When dried work with 220 grit sand paper till you achieve the lines you want. spray cover with primer and apply touch up paint(Dealer has the best matchs) in coats. When happy with color use a 400 grit wet sandpaper to get a highly smooth finish and when dried cover with a clear coat finish.(Auto part stores). Buff when that dries and I guarantee thats the cheapest easiest d-i-y- fix you can get.

2000ford Taurus where do you find the color code for the paint

Its on the driver side door edge AKA a "jamb". The code is after the EXT PNT and will just be a couple letters. Take this code to your paint supplier and they will have a book to translate it into an actual paint color.

No, that would probably be the clearcoat and would need refinishing.
