Question about Microwave Ovens
If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it can rust. If it rusts through, the microwave would be ruined.
The metal will need to be sanded smooth and clean.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.
Once that's done, be sure the oven is ventilating properly. A failure to ventilate can be due to blocked air vents, clogged filters or blocked duct work (on over the range models) or a problem with the internal fan.

Yes, but if this is not fixed, it may flake off and get in your food, or allow grease or food particles to build up on the surface.
The loose paint should really be sanded off, at least.
Then when it's clean and dry, you can apply a little high-temperature appliance paint, available from department stores, home improvement centers, and appliance parts stores.
