Have you thought about using an overlay product to achieve that? There are decking paver systems (wood, plastic products, and tile) that more or less snap and fit into place over the decking.

One would think that this would be a FAQ at the Trex website. Have you checked there? And if not, I'm sure an email or call would produce the answer. That would seem to be a better idea than opinions here.
Oh, what the hell. I couldn't help myself. I just put "Can you paint trex "?, into google:
This depends on the paint or stain, but testing has shown the paints or sta ins on Trex decking will last as long as or longer than paints or stains on wood. Because Trex decking absorbs minimal moisture, the paint or stain wi ll not experience checking or splitting.

From the trex web site:
Can standard Trex composite decking and railing be painted?
Yes, you can paint or stain Trex decking or railing to achieve a custom color, but it is not necessary for protection. Paints and stains that adhere well to wood will work as well or better with Trex products. Trex decking that has been faded can be painted or stained at any time, even years after it has been installed. However you should use paint or stain that is made for a walking surface. Note Trex TranscendTM decking or railing and Trex Escapes® cannot be painted or stained.
Personally, I find the idea of painting something that never needs painting a really bad idea. Once painted, you need to continue painting. The best way to clean a deck is with a power washer. Once you paint it, you have to worry about the power washer removing the paint.
So: yes you can, no you shouldn't.

It's basically plastic. It should take stain. There's a good chance that it won't stick very well. If you care about the looks that much then why not remove it and put down something attractive?
