Post "compound crap" update and how to remove ding

If you remember, Im the dum dum that lathered 1/2 a bottle of liquid compound on my Jeep and tried to buff it off. Well, a week later I see how great this stuff really is. I might have made a fairly easy job into a huge mess, but the results are amazing. The paint shines and feels as smooth as glass. Today, I just did a simple wash. The sponge just glides across the paint. Ive included a few pics.

Also, I was wondering if anyone could help me with the scratches/dings in the paint. There are a few scattered around and Id like to fill them in or something. Any ideas? Im tempted to try the Turtle wax scratch fill system, but its like $20 and I have no reviews on it.

Thanks again for all your suggestions!

This one is on the bumper and have no idea what its from. There are many of these on the bumper:

UGH!
Is there anything I can put on it to prevent it from getting worse? As I said, these spots are kinda scattered all over the bumper...

Its been suggested though.

For the ding, If I get some touch up paint from the dealer and put it on, do I need to seal it with anything or just paint and go?

for the ding...paintless dent removal. For the clearcoat damage...repaint if you want it perfect.
