how deep are your scratches? i know you said you ran your fingers over the scratches, but you need to run your fingernails over the scratches. if your fingernails catch, then you'll probably have to wetsand (which isnt something i would do, but if you're up to it then go ahead). if it doesnt catch, you can probably get away with just polishing or compounding the scratches.
in my experience, theres no difference in how you approach scratches on metal and plastic body parts.
i've never tried to do any polishing/compounding by hand since i have a buffer so i cant really recommend any products.
are the scratches past the clearcoat/paint? if they are, then you're out of luck.
