You can fill the gap in the first pic with some food safe epoxy. Mix in some maple saw dust for an approximate color match or dye it for some contrast if desired. Can also buy some wood putty or make some with yellow glue and saw dust. The problem with trying to blend it is that it’s end grain and going to be hard to do. I’d be more inclined to go with an intentional color contrast.

I wouldn’t send end grain through my planer. If you choose to, make sure the blades are razor sharp and take extremely light passes. If it were me, I’d tackle that with a belt sander with some coarse paper.
