I will need to replace a wooden board that is currently colored to interior. Perhaps that could be film that is glued on wood. Can someone recommend a solution and where to buy this?

Your local hardware store or paint store will have lots of choices for for wood stains, tint colour, finish (gloss or satin). Take a piece of the replacement wood and a piece that you want to match it to.
BUT, there is a good chance that the original is MDF (I call it pressed board or sawdust wood) with a wood finished plastic wrap over it.

If it's the not uncommon vinyl coated oak stuff, trim that matches in both appearance and construction is often available at the usual big box stores. I've gotten some corner molding there that is indistinguishable from the rest of the woodwork in my RV.

If you want something reasonably close, actual oak with a gloss or maybe semi-gloss polyurethane might do the trick. It likely wouldn't be a perfect match.

With a little experimenting you can take a piece of wood with similar grain and use 2 or 3 or 4 different color stains, one at a time, and a little at a time, until your color is close to what you want to match. A little patience and you can match most anything.

Following some of today’s home show trends it seems like anything goes when redecorating rooms. That said I prefer having that warm oak finish whenever possible and have used a stain called golden oak that works quite well in our Dutch Star!.

Do not know about the hardware store but any major paint company Should have a color match system

Sherman Williams is the one I used to, many years ago, work for a division of (Wily E Coyote's favorite paint company.... Acme) I know the store I visited sure matched my RV like perfectly.
