Reparing Stainless Trim.. How?

Hi,
I'm going to be repairing some stainless Trim.
Much of the trim has been slightly damaged and dented in.

I'm thinking I should get an Oxy-Act set up to heat the metal as I do some metal shaping... Is this a good plan? or do I need to go that far?
Is shaping stainless different than regular body steel?

I also need to weld up holes in places that will be covered in paint and places that won't be covered in paint.
Can anyone talk a litte bit about how to weld up a HOLE in Stainless. I have a 110V Mig.

Thanks!
-alfie
