I am new to adobe premier pro. I can find effects to make a video look like the 70s and 60s but is there a place that I can add a few scratches that are on films of the 60s and 70s? I don't want to overdo it, but I want to add some of the scratches that are a result of the film not being developed properly.

the type of camera you have and the shooting styles..
There's a few steps that is recommended before shooting your film that can go a long way to simplify the process, plugins can't cover all the bases, and plugins as you may know cost the earth with Adobe.
They are
Shoot at 24 fps
choose your composition, width height even add a black rounded border to the top and bottom, blur the edges so it looks like the old projector style.
be aware of the lighting around you
Keep in mind the motivation of the video shoot.
Consider using other tools it's a great idea to have several open source free to use and only require some talented thinking.
