If you use the anti slip chips in the finish coat it will give you some grip to the floor.

You shouldn't have any problems with wear, you may have to recoat it every couple of years for added protection depending on how much use it gets. I know the stain is very durrable, they also use it for patios and walkways which are exposed to outside elements and hold up just fine. As far as the basement floor, if you can power wash it that would be your best bet for getting most of the loose paint off. You said the basement gets damp at times so it will be tough to keep it from peeling in the future, but get as much as the loose paint off now and use a good quality porch and floor enamel for the top coat. I've always used Ben. Moores.
