Is the child lock set to the "on" position of this PS rear door? When the door's open, it's a little black slider that's close to the clasp. Check there 1st. Keeps the kids from opening the doors from inside...also good for keeping your friends in the car if they're not behaving.
Assuming it's not that simple, the door panels come off pretty easily on these cars. To save yourself some money, you could easily look inside your rear door to see if all your linkage is connected and working properly. Sounds like your PS front door could use a little lube. Try hitting it w/ some WD-40 before taking it to a shop.
The paint work isn't that simple. If it's not horrible, it may buff out. Otherwise, you're looking at some serious money to have the door repaired.
