I think what a pro would do is to cut the entire damaged brick out and replace it if at all possible with new (one of the ones you've already removed or a matching brick from a salvage yard), matching-in the mortar around it to the original. Seen that done quite a bit on listed refurbs over the years. I have seen repairs to damaged stone and brick (mainly settlement cracks) done with epoxy resin and colouring material, but many of them are still visible upon inspection. I reckon that grinder cuts would always stand out partly because of the unnatural straightness of the line being difficult to disguise, hence the replacement approach
