Welding up trim holes

I did a search and didn't find the topic covered, however feel free to point me to any existing thread.

I want to weld up the trim holes in 4 areas of my car:
1. bumpers (deco strip holes)
2. hood (badge holes)
3. decklid (badge holes)
4. rockers (deco trim)

I likely won't get to the last one until I actually tackle repainting the whole car. However, the other 3 I can do and just get the pieces painted (or paint them myself).

What are some techniques for welding up trim holes? For the bumpers where the backside is not cosmetic, I have heard that if you put a nail through the hole and use the head as a backer, it's easier to weld up and then grind down. However, for the hood and the decklid, the backside is cosmetic, what to do? Differences in techniques between using MIG and using brass brazing?
