You cannot properly apply stain over paint. Stain need clan natural wood to adhere to. And these panels being a composite "wood", you cannot sand it and have nice grain for the stain. I would find a comparable color paint to what you want.

Hello. Thank you for your question. Proper finishing of plywood siding protects it from weathering, reduces maintenance, and improves the appearance and performance of the siding project. To begin the finishing process, the wood surface must be clean and dry prior to any finish application. An all acrylic-latex paint system will do the best job of sealing the wood from moisture and ultraviolet exposure from the sun. The acrylic-latex paint performs best if it first has a primer applied of the same manufacturer as the paint. Solid-color stain, limited to either latex or oil-based, can give good protection, but normally has to be reapplied more often than the acrylic paint. For best results, apply a prime coat followed by two finish coats. Latex semi-transparent stains or oil-based house paints are not recommended. In addition, spray application is not recommended. Finishing should be applied by brush or roller rather than spray application. Above all, read and follow the paint manufacturer’s instructions for finishing the siding project.
