Yes, you can spot repair. Keep in mind that matching texture can be difficult, so practicing on waste material like cardboard until you have the hang of it is a good idea.

Are they drywall stress cracks or texture compound cracks?

You will need to remove all/any texture that is loose. You will then need to sand or skim the edges with joint compound and retexture.

Can you post us a pic of the texture?
