It looks like the piece it is supposed to latch on to to hold the door is wore down on the metal, is there a way to fix this

Are the door hinges badly worn? Open the door ands see if you can lift the door, if so get new hings pins start here.

Thanks, I think it needs that and I also see the metal on the striker is worn down, how can I replace the striker?

If it is a single post type striker it will unscrew. But with the door realigned the missing plastic coating will not be a problem
