METAL molding!?!?!!?!???

routing the wood trim out should work and some caulk should hide some minor imperfections. Good luck and post pics when done. Just be carefull when grinding cause if you heat the metal up to much it will discolor bad and warp.

METAL molding!?!?!!?!???

Metal door frames are almost always made in two parts. Slide one side in then the other slips behind and is fastened by various methods. Some that you can't get to once it's installed.

Did you open the door and look up? The frames may be fastened in such a way that you can simply remove the trim by unscrewing a retainer or snapping the trim back out of the frame channel.
