Could this be placed on top of an old concrete patio wood expanders?

That is very difficult to determine. If the old patio is stable with no cracking, uplifting or other visible signs of movement, it is possible. If the patio is old and has shown minimal signs of movement over decades, then it could have reached a point of stability. Much also depends on your soils conditions below, and if you live in a regions of expansive clay soils. It you do overlay, you should also install an anti-fracture membrane that will alleviate horizontal movement issues. This patio did have such a membrane installed. I recommend that you talk with a highly qualified mason that is familiar with your region. Saving a few dollars by retaining the old concrete as a base may not the best approach, as a new concrete base is usually about 25-30% of the overall cost.

Thank you. The stone is an Arizona Sandstone, a fairly available material across the U.S.

It may be possible, but there will always be some detail differences between stamped concrete vs. real stone. Some may include: a difficulty in carrying through eding at steps or the sides of exposed paving; a lack in variation in paving colors and textures from stone to stone; a repeated pattern that may be picked up upon very close scrutiny. From our past experience, we have found real stone atop a concrete foundation base to be double the cost of stamped concrete.

Most just use a mortar mix. like this one. those with larger spaces, tend to use a sackrete with pea gravel mix

The stone is Arizona Sandstone, which comes in various color shades and tones. This particular stone color is called "Buckskin", which has variations in shade within that color range. It is always best to inspect the shipment or "lot" of stone you purchase, as there can be inconsistent variations within.
