How can I fix this small damage to the neck binding and the fretboard?
Take a look at Frank Ford’s
I did search the discussions there but couldn't find anything similar to the repair I want to do.
What material is the Ibanez neck binding made of? Should I try repairing both the binding and the small fretboard damage?
Look for techniques with “drop filling” with cyanoacrylate adhesives. CA or “Super Glue”
I have no idea what kind of finish you are dealing with, but it is a good bet that it came out of a test tube
As always, read and practice before you do anything
Look at this to get some ideas
a lot of guys make a paste by melting the binding scraps in acetone to do patch up work.
Marty is right on the binding scraps if you can find a matching acetate binding. Not sure what Ibanez is made from but once the soaked binding is softened on acetone just wipe a little on in layers until it is filled. Scrape or sand flush and good to go.
Post pics of progress.
Well, the rosewood? fingerboard also looks like it got compressed on the impact.
Steaming the rosewood MAY push it out a little bit. But you may have to actually remove some of the binding to get the edge of the fingerboard straight again.
THEN repair the binding as mentioned above.

I will hire an specialist if I were you, maybe the "fix" can create a bigger damage
I would try knock that binding out to where it was, then steam the rosewood board to fill the gap and drop some super glue on it to keep it there. Then deal with drop filling that dented binding and sanding everything smooth.
That fret may pop up a little if it hasn't already so keep an eye on it.
