What do I need to fix this?
Hello. So, I’m trying to install a new lock but I notice this little hole. So I wonder what do i need to fix this? Would wood filler work for this?
I don’t want to have to buy a new door frame or get one installed.

Buy a two pack wood filler. This stuff sets quickly, sands down easily and takes paint well. See link for UK example.

It looks like you could use a door saver. That's a brass plate that covers the wood for a few inches above and below the lock, with a hole for the lock to pass through.
