the brake pad area ,sandpaper on a block  will clean it up and soon as you start driving the brake pads will do the rest
as far as the rest, you can sand it down and paint parts that are not contacted by the brake pads
I have used some high heat bare cast iron look  finish on my rotors and drums and it stayed looking like bare metal for years
