My question is: Is staining about 1000 sf of concrete something a
diy newbie can do?

Steve, I stained my driveway and it was no big deal. The stain is
usually acid based and you spray it on.

So you're saying you can spray color onto existing concrete with a
fighting chance of it being permanent? I'm wondering because I have a
client who wants to have some newly-poured concrete in front of their
house painted, and I told them that I thought that painting concrete was
not a good idea.

More details? Color range?
