The main difference between concrete paint and stain is that stain is colored and thinner. Concrete paint is used mainly to paint over top of existing concrete while stain will change the color. Stain is used more indoors than the paint.

Yes you can use wood stain on concrete but it will not penetrate the concrete, it does look nice and you can use different shades together.
