Replacing Front Bumper/Cover? And Grill modifications?

First: Are bumpers and bumper covers different?

This is the state of my current bumper.

I have ordered a bumper cover. Will that suffice? And how do I replace the old one with a new one?

Second: Has anyone modified the grill? Colored it all in one color? Only the inserts? Only the edges of the grill? Any suggestions?

Thank you

You will need a bumper and an impact strip.
Best find a used one rather than a new (fibreglass copy).

Unfortunately I have already ordered a new (fiberglass) one as used ones are hard to come.by. I have been wanting it for a whole year and never found anything satisfactory.

So I removed the old one since I got the duraflex one. Looks like I have to drill holes etc. Has anyone done this? Any tips or write-up anywhere? I searched for it but no results. Thanks.
