Talking laminate sub floor

I would like to put down laminate flooring over an existing h/w floor, is it ok to do or should I rip up the old h/w. The wife does not want to refinish the old hardwood because of the dust ( kid's with asthma) and also the smell of the stain. Also, if it is ok to do I would like to know about the stairs. They are also h/w and I was wondering if they sell pieces of laminate that go over the curved part of the h/w. Thanks for any info

You can float a floor over just about anything. Just be sure to install a vapor/cushion pad prior to laying it.

Yes, they should be available at bix box stores and flooring specialty stores. It's just called a transition piece.
