If you are going to install wood on the stairs then you probably will want to remove the ballisters and rail as well. It will not look clean if you try to match it up with existing wood on the edges. Let me know if that helps.

Would you just pick a tone in the flooring and stain the rail/ballisters/newel posts/treads/risers to match? Or would you have someone come in and try to achieve the same finish as the flooring has (eg. bleached/limed/pickled/handscraped/etc...)? Thanks for your help!

It really is personal preference. Keep in mind that what can be done in a factory is not always able to be done on site. I would approach it by choosing a wood flooring product and see if the manufacturer sells the stain with it. If not then you need to hire someone who works with wood and feels comfortable with creating the color you are looking for on your rails etc..
