fake "chrome" on plastic / unpainted plastic body parts

Also, on the G35 the lower area below the doors is like unpainted plastic.....black....how should I clean/take care of this?

Clean with 20/20 glass cleaner. That's it.
Any black plastic, I clean with soap and water and dress with Mothers Back to Black or 303 Protectant.

AIO then SG or BFII, depending on the surface. The harder/smoother the surface, the more inclined I am to use SG. The more textured, BF.

I'd suggest a washing with the rest of the car, and no wax...many waxes even say that they are not for use metalized (sp?) surfaces. At least with older cars, super delicate cleaning and no more...or the "chrome" washes off.
For the plastic trim on the door bottoms...you could also try 303.

As far as treating chromed plastic, you can wax it; the front grill and headlight surrounds of my '85 XJS are that stuff. Now days I use AIO/SG on it, but for maybe ten years I used Pinnacle's PCL or, usually, Meg's cleaner wax to clean it when needed, then put carnauba on it. No problems, and I've had the car for 19 years now. I even "sealed" a nasty rock chip (bad enough that the chrome was gonna *really* peel off of the plastic) with *lots* of SG and it's held up just fine. FWIW, I have *real* chrome that's worn off the top of the door handles, but the chromed plastic stuff is virtually like new.
