Unfortunately, to get a perfect match, most of the time you'll have to paint the whole panel. In some situations, you will also need to blend the paint to the surrounding panels.

yes, if your body shop is good enough to match the color perfect. I've seen it done, but usually on the easier-to-match colors like black, red, topaz blue, dark gray, etc.
