Is it possible to get a diamond bit for a standard router to round off the
edges of hardened concrete and/or cut slots in it with rounded edges?

Never heard of such but steel is much harder than concrete. So is
carbide but it would be too brittle to even try I would think.

yes, but an easier way to round off edges is to use a diamond pad on an
air-operated grinder. that's how they do edges on granite tabletops, for
instance. if you want a profile different than a roundover, you can get
diamond bits for routers, but you'd need an air router to use them. a slot
can be cut with a diamond saw blade, but again, in a water feed device.

Sorry, but you have it backwards- components of concrete (sand and
aggregate) are harder than any steel, and will quickly grind any steel
bit away. Some stone-cutting tools might be appropriate, like from
Trow & Holden in Barre, VT.
A router wouldn't be the tool, but what you want is at least
technically possible and is done. You see streets where they cut such
grooves into the concrete for traction and to lower the level prior to
resurfacing. That equipment is not available for home use though.
