There are proprietary products to remove "bloom" from these lacquers - as with anything else, it's best to try them on an inconspicuous area first to make sure there's no problem. A specialist paint store should have them, or one specialising in timber products. You can also buy sticks of coloured wax for local repairs to chips, scratches and so forth.
I normally advise people to avoid the use of silicone products on these finishes, including spray cleaners.
Finally, repairs to lacquer surfaces are best made with a spray-gun because the lacquer goes off (hardens) very quickly. Once again, not really a job for the novice. You may, repeat may, be able to brush a polyurethane or water-based varnish over the lacquer but it's likely to change the colour so you might prefer to paint a large area. As always, good preparation with something like a silicone carbide paper is vital! Ideally you scrape everything back, go thorough the grades of paper and respray the lot. No guarantees to any of this - and you're going to have to look at the results every morning...
