That looks like beyond repair to me, it’s the phone main frame and beside being steel, that’s a critical part of the iPhone antennas system. Your best chance in my opinion would be to replace the housing and quite likely you’ll need at least a new dock. Hard to tell much about touch ID, check carefully both flex cable with a good light source and some magnification, it’s not easy to see small damages with naked eye. Here’s dock replacement’s guide:
