Deck restoration

I have a Morgan Out Island 41. There are a ton of old hardware on the deck that I want to remove. Snaps for a nonexistent dodger, unused fairleads, deck mount for long gone spinnaker boom, etc. Some holes are in a cored deck, others are in a hollow. It is my plan to spend a weekend pulling screws and filling with epoxy. I watched a fiberglass guy repair bunch of screw holes in my pedestal last year. He used a counter sink to flare the holes. I never understood why. So I have 2 questions:
1. Should I counter sink the holes as well? Or sand it smooth and fill the hole?
2. Do I use talc or some other filler to thicken up the epoxy?
