    Wow. I think if that is concrete you may be able to cut small tile and place it in that area. Might look kinda nice

    clean up the stairs, stain and then seal. As far as the gap, you can do just about anything you like. Paint, trim out with tile, or for fun stencil numbers in those spots.

    You could measure the spaces and cut small pieces of wood to just slip in each space

    Yep. The skirt board is missing. Too late to install it now. All you can do is cut triangles out of wood to fit the spaces and give the appearance of a skirt board. Use construction adhesive to glue them in.

    I would cut bead board and put it there.
