Does anyone have any experience taking off/painting the chrome trim on the front fender of some SE models?

are you trying to figure out how to remove it or what?
If so then the easiest way i've found it to remove the wheel well liner and you can get to the back of it from there. I know it has some pressure clips to release from behind and i'm pretty sure double sided tape on it as well.

as far as painting, you can use krylon fusion on it. made for plastic and no prep/primer needed. just clean it and paint.

The chrome by the door is what I'm talking about. I'm wanting to dechrome the car completely and go with a black/red theme and I'm considering painting them or removing. Not sure yet. Will removing them leave any blemishes on the car? Holes, etc.

yes. there are holes in the fender for where it clips in. if you want to remove them completely then it would be a good idea to just get a set of black fenders from a 09-11 and swap them. otherwise just pull them off and paint and put back on.
