fixing small plastic tabs/ and fixing toyota bumper

two separate questions. Fixed my wife's quarter and took off the bumper to repair. It's a 2002 Honda civic. The tabs are small and thin and broken. In a shop we always get new ones when that happens but if I wanted to would a plastic repair work to fix them? I don't think they'd hold up and if they did they did I imagine they'd have to be too thick to squeeze into the bracket. I said we should replace it but if it's doable I'd rather do that. One of the tabs holds a bracket right under the tail light. Is this possible? Btw, the tabs are too small for a net to help. Any advice appreciated.

Also, am fixing an old man's 96 tacoma as a favor. The rear chrome bumper is bent down on the right side and the bracket is bent on that side. Could I just stick a porta power down there with a 2x4 and push it up? Would it work? I think it's worth a try. Or do you think I should just go to pick and pull and grab a used one with right bracket?
