You can paint almost anything with the proper prep

Clean with Dirtex , sand, clean again, prime with a quality bonding primer, paint with a quality paint.This entails NOT going to a big box store

For sure! You wouldn't buy fresh fish at a box store right? Why would you get paint from one?

In addition to usual paint choices, there are materials like melamine paint designed to go over the kind of materials you describe. As mentioned, prep is key.
