Will a decal stick to wood?

Your permanent vinyl should well adhere to wood that's treated with a base coat so long as your project is kept inside. If you want to try a topcoat, I would let the vinyl adhesive cure for 24-48 hours before adding a topcoat so the adhesives don't mix and cause the vinyl to peel.

Simply so, will vinyl stick to wood?

Vinyl should stick decently to unfinished wood, but if you sand and coat it with either paint or a clear coat, it will adhere much easier. You definitely want to wait and make sure your paint is nice and cured before you stick your vinyl to it.

Beside above, how do you keep wooden stickers from peeling? One method is to apply heat from a hairdryer set on low to the sticker. The heat will soften the adhesive, allowing you to gently pull the sticker off the surface. Another option is to saturate the sticker with rubbing alcohol before gently scraping it off the surface with the dull side of a butter knife.

Considering this, can you put vinyl on wood cutting board?

YES! You can absolutely used heat transfer vinyl on wood. HTV (especially smooth HTV like Siser Easyweed) is really thin and flexible, so it looks almost like paint on the wood. You can see how the iron on vinyl almost melts into the wood in the photo below.

Do you need to seal vinyl on wood?

Not sure about your vinyl letters, but a good sealer for outdoor use is Sparurethane. It's like polyurethane, but for outside. You'd seal the wood, with multiple light coats of whatever you'd want to use for indoor or out, sand lightly between coats to eliminate bubbles, and adhere the vinyl on top of the sealant.
