Question repairing hardwood floor

We just pulled up carpet from our dining room. The wood floor underneath has some holes from old heating ducts that were just repaired with plywood and there are also spots that have nails pounding in for support (we think). How do we go about replacing and repairing the broken boards?

Pictures would be helpful. What kind of floor is it and what width is the wood? Is the floor natural or stained?

I'm not sure what wood it is, but the rest of the house is a 4 inch pine. This is the narrow 2 inch board. I have seen where people drill holes then use a chisel to chip out the old board. We have a lot of long boards to replace and I am wondering if maybe we should just put something over it. I don't want to use something that is out of character with the rest of the house. Any recommendations?
