The "best " filler would have been to use pellets. But as the job is already done then filler it is we use this
or try this
Staining will always be a bit akward, the grain is different and pine can become patchy if you aren't careful. There are several stains available both spirit or water based. I personally go for the spirit and but the dark stain and dilute to suit. Always try on a waste piece first.
This may give you a visual idea of the differences
