Ok, so with a latex paint you'll want to allow it to dry completely then use a carpet paste(you can buy one or use white vinegar and baking soda) with a wire brush to get it out.

I have in the past used quick and brite, but I've also just made my own and it works fine.

For the couch, I would call the company that made the couch. Micr fiber is a sensitive material, and I would be scared to clean it, because you can change the color easily or damage it. I've actually never understood why they sell microfiber as a great material for people with kids.
