Spackle! It is magic, comes in all sizes (small is all you need and it will come in handy for other patching jobs) and it so easy to use. You might need to stir it up first, then apply and smooth out. When it is dry just lightly sand and apply your paint. Good luck!
Some hardware stores sell little bottles of sample paint. Take a chip of the paint and see if you can match it. Then just use a little spackle if needed to smooth out the hole, then cover with the new paint. If you can't find the little bottles, you can just ask the hardward store to sell you the smallest pot, which is prob a quart. They can color match any color. You need a sample about the size of a postage stamp.
