Keep It polished/waxed is about the best you can do.
You could clean it up good and clear coat it, but when that starts peeling it's a PITA to remove and redo.

Clear coat is nothing more than clear paint.
You local auto store should have some.

Depends on how bad they are.
If it's scratched through the chrome plating, then no, not really.
Really fine sandpaper and polishing will remove surface scratches.
