Yes. You need to clean it, sand it shiny, then clean it squeky again.
Then you can get high temperature appliance paint in spray on brush-on form from local appliance part store or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.
I would suggest you let it dry overnight with the door open before using the oven.

As long as the waveguide itself isn't damaged, you should be able to replace the shield without issue... That shield only prevents food from splashing onto the waveguide itself and is not part of the microwave RF protection... Check your local hardware store for touch up paint.. shouldn't matter what brand as long as it contains rust inhibitors.. Good luck...

The Magnetron has failed, causing the waveguide to become damaged. If the waveguide is damaged/burned the microwave can not be repaired and should be replaced.

1) How is the cavity damaged? Is it just peeling paint, or is it rust? If it's rust then the microwave could be dangerous.
2) The antenna cap usually has a small hole in the centre, but if there are any other holes in it the magnetron itself could be damaged, and holes caused by the magnetrin arcing.

Unplug the oven and unfasten the cabinet body, using a screwdriver. The body should be attached along the back as well as along the sides or bottom.
Slide the cabinet body back slightly to clear any internal brackets, then lift it off.
Clean the oven, using a vacuum with plastic crevice attachment. Vacuum the fan and other internal parts, then vacuum the vents underneath the oven, on the back and inside the chamber.
Reassemble the oven and plug it in.
Fill a small bowl with a 50-50 mixture of water and white vinegar, then set it in the oven and turn the oven on high for 5 minutes. When the mixture boils, it will remove stubborn smells inside the vents and loosen food particles on the oven walls.
Wipe down the oven walls with a clean sponge.
