heeelllooo and welcome lewap :welcome: :welcome: :welcome:

the easiest is fit the new door hinges and fill around
if painting you can fill with timber or hardboard and sand flat
other options are find a bit off timber say 10-12mm thick cut a tapered pocket o.5-1mm shallower than the timber and glue in well

we are all ------------------still learning

The hinge recess in your pic is neat and tidy, were it old and bashed about I'd say fit a patch, but it's a reasonably skilled job to do it seamlessly.

If the "new" doors already have hinges fitted, consider moving them to marry up with the frame,(and then use a two-part filler to tidy up the door), or if they are only slightly misaligned, fit larger hinges.

One day it will all be firewood.
