Scrapped off a little piece on the underside of my model 3. Do you think this is a concern or just cosmetic damage that can be repaired with some glue? Suggestions?

It looks like fiberglass. I would remove it and do a fiberglass repair (kits are available in any boat shop) or ask a boat repairer

I concur with @Frank99, a contact cement like Shoe Goo should work pretty well and be easy enough. Just wipe some on both parts with your finger and then press it up into place - it'll stick immediately. And if you can't, won't, or fail to fix it, it's no big deal to have that small hole there. Water and air go up in there anyway.

The scratched metal is the sway bar so there's no harm done. It's an indestructible solid steel bar.

Would this void warranty?

No.

Also how would I install this (how do I get under the car) ?

If you are asking, you probably would want to pay someone to do it for you.
Any tire shop or an independent wrench will get the install done in 15-30 minutes max. Might charge your for full hour, though.
