Unless the amateur is highly skilled, solid will require professional installation which has a limited technique. There is first a tongue and groove installation and then the edges must be nailed down.
Engineered has more options. There's a click-and-lock mechanism that's similar to solid but needs no nails or glue since it can simply "float" over an existing subfloor. If you do want to add extra attaching, it can be glued as well as nailed.
Solid, because of its moisture issues, should not be installed over concrete. Engineered fares better with moisture, so it can.
Both have a range of species to choose from, but the most popular ones are in the oak, maple, walnut, cherry, and hickory categories. Both hardwood styles have the same easy maintenance requirements.
