stain between boards will not remove and will leave dark lines between pieces. call it 'character'.....
oak never looks good to me stained dark walnut. it won't absorb the stain evenly because of it's natural grain.
what do you think of carpeting? or a new cork floor?

Might be worth a shot.

Why not wipe down the floor with stain completely to prevent 'spot fixes'.

I did this on a door that was stained walnut and it took care of the scratches. I wiped down the entire door even where the finish was good. Of course it wiped away form the poly'ed areas but gave an overall cohesive look.

It might be an alternative to refinishing.

I'd recommend trying it in a small area to see if you could live with it.
