ok - this is a pretty indepth project to tackle correctly.
for a small project like this that will only be used for a few minutes,
I would tell your friend that since it is soft pine and small graphics,
it is out of your skill set to do what he wants.
option "B" would be to do a dark stain and paint the letters with paint.
you can try all your options on similar material and see what works
the best for you with what you have.
soft pine is notorious for "wicking" stain into and out of carved graphics.
practice with some samples before doing the real deal.
