You can have it professionally reupholstered or donate it to a charity and take the market value off your income taxes and use that to buy a new settee. Call a local reupholster and ask for their advise first though. Maybe they know more than I do. :)

Go to an auto repair store. Many sell the kits to repair faux leather car seats, and sometimes you see it advertised on TV. We used it once on a car seat and it worked well. Sorry, I do not remember the exact name of the product.

Hi there. It can't really be patched.

You could peel off or sand off the top layer, clean it thoroughly, dry it, then spray with a vinyl paint.
