I’ve done a couple of slab projects, only for use in my home, so take my advice lightly.
Looks like you’d be best off using both bow ties and epoxy. Those look to be some major voids.
While some folks dye the epoxy black, I did not. Instead, I added semi-precious stones as a kind of aggregate in the voids. Cheaper stuff deeper, better stuff near the surface. I also did not try to sand the voids. Made no sense to me to try to sand something I was going to drown in epoxy.
I would also at least skim coat the entire surface of the slab to fill in the termite tunnels.
I didn’t try to keep the bark on the ones I did, so I have no suggestions for that. The wife was concerned that the bark would just be a dust catcher, so off it came.
