Peek repair and adjustments?

What are the methods for peek repair?
I have to assume there’s not one way to fix this?

Replace sear pin, add metal to sear hole is the fast and easy answer.

Is there any guidance to to using similar metals so they wear evenly?
Any other concerns or consideration to think about?

Thanks

Also is a press used to pin scales and pins?

Thanks
