Hello and welcome to the forum! A little punctuation and separate sentences, would make your question easier to understand. Unclear as to what exactly you want to fix.

Garcia, what you show is no $900 repair even if you do it yourself. New fender, New bumper cover. Paint job with color match for both.
Not sure what happened to the pass side airbag, looks like it started deploying? Bag reinstall is $350 itself. Plus cosmetic damage to the panel.
Quite not sure what you trying to fix on the door? I see where clamp holds window.. Sounds like window regulator, that's easy, only around $100.
Silver basel around gear shifter - find those at junkyard.
My rough guess is $1500 or so DIY.
Good luck.

To save money you could use some heat and massage the bumper cover where the damage won't be as noticeable but it will never be right! Modern day body panels are so thin that the conventional beat out the dent and bondo doesn't work well but you could give it a try. You could paint the shifter bezel - use a paint for plastic like Kyrlon's Fusion [?]
