    Just a bit... Has that actually ripped the steel?

    What car? Cheapest would be a used door from a scrappy, may even find one the right colour.

    get it to a body shop. they will estimate it . parts +labour + paint+materials used. its going to cost-no doubt about that. also contact your insurance company. it may cost you your ncb but may be worth it.

    No. There is no scale or detail of position in the photo so you are effectively asking "how long is a piece of string". Get a couple of quotes to see what the price range is.
