How do you patch plastic pipe?
Take alluminum foil and put it over the pipe, or you can also use duck tape. Another (far more accurate) answer: That depends on the function of the pipe. If it's carrying pressurized water or sewer water, don't patch it, replace it. Use appropriate fittings to splice in new pipe after carefully cutting out the old, damaged section of pipe. There are special fittings for splicing into a section of pipe that has to be cut away, but if you have any questions or concerns about properly splicing a pipe, contact a qualified plumber or handyman. For other pipe applications (some people use pipe to build frames) you can use whatever you want when patching plastic pipe. Note that for some applications, specifically sprinkler pipe, there are patch segments available to repair sections of pipe that have burst from freezing.

Is it okay to paint plastic pipes?
If you are intending to paint plastic pipes because they are visible in a room and you want to disguise them, the answer is yes. For the white or cream coloured pipes, that carry water (hot and cold) from a source, you may need to give them a light sanding to remove the printing on the surface. Follow with a wipe with a tack cloth, then paint with a good latex primer and finish with your top coat. In some cases two or possibly three coats of your top coat will do if you have no primer. For the large black pipes that carry waste water away, a light sanding, followed by a good latex primer and then your top coat will get the job done. If you are painting the pipes hoping the paint will reduce condensation, or worse still a leak, I'm sorry, paint won't help you. If you have used plastic pipe for decorative purposes, then follow the instructions above.

Why use plastic over metal? Plastic pipes will not corrode like metal pipes will. In metal pipes, as corrosion builds, the inside diameter of the pipe gets smaller over time thus reducing flow but not pressure.
