A decent stocker should be able to make the stock look good - ask around your local Gunsmiths and get the best price , cash often helps keep costs down.

Yes just plug them with suitable matching wood. You'll never get it the same and will always see it but without the cost of getting somebody else to do it.

I watched one guy and he uses epoxy mixed with the grains of wood he sands off the same stock?

Ive not heard of gel staining before .whats the base carrier .? 

Water.oil.other ? 

hello, this was recommended by a AGF member as more suitable to apply straight on the beech stock, once you have the right finish and dry then apply an oil finish

No a filler will be no good for that size hole. They look quite substantial. Plug it and use a gorilla glue type. Not sure but would think epoxy would not take a stain. 

Most builders yards have lengths of dowel in a rack somewhere see if you can find something suitable. No way would I just pack a hole like that with filler unless I was planning on painting it again. 

Also as a general rule, always use whatever dust comes off that piece of wood to refill holes/cracks (if you can). It's a match - color wise- straight away. 

I personally would of used paint stripper from the start as ive learnt the hard way of taking too much off a stock which results in a poor finish when it comes to refitting. But I'm usually impatient and whip out the 180 grit when I want a quick result.... On a air gun you shouldnt notice (unless you done the tops to much and inside where the action sits) until you come to the butt pad which might have a lip to it now, so either belt sand it slowly yourself or take it to a cobbler. 

As for doing a finish don't be impatient on that, one of mine took about 6 weeks to do with giving every coat a couple of days to dry in between. Then I bought tru oil and cheated. 😅
