Well i did some looking up on the heat gun and it seems to be more for like a dent and this is more of a deep scratch, so i think i need something to fill it with and then i could just sand it down and repaint??

let a touch up guy look at it, looks to me it will require the bumper to be painted though

Bondo makes a flexible filler specifically for bumpers. To do it right your going to want to paint the whole bumper.

For your bumper I would remove it and take it to a body shop since you don't have expirience repairing bumpers, easiest, safest, cheapest.
