Yeah, just some scrapage it looks like. A closer picture would help. This kind of damage is common; unless it's a puncture or big bend, the swingarm's integrity should be fine.

I found a picture of a swingarm that was not damaged. It looks like I shaved off that tiny bolt that spins.

What would this be for even? To stop the chain from lifting up in a crash?

Ah it looks like I shaved off the screw that allows you to put the bike on a stand to replace the tire etc..

I just bought a set of stands, will the bike still hold up if it is on one of those screws or perhaps I can redrill and replace this screw?

You shaved off the spool? Just get a stand with paddles if you cant put a new spool in that side.

It looks the spool mount adapter is still mostly intact.. you should inspect it more closely but I'd think you could just clean it up with a round bastard file and the correct metric thread repair tap.
