Is it possible to find a Slack user via full name or id, and then set their status?

I believe thats possible, but you should have a paid plan on Slack.
You can use below actions to search for user.
You can use below action to update user status
You can also try to make custom webhook call on Slack API here https://api.slack.com/methods/users.profile.set

The Slack Find User Zap actions do not return the user Status.
The Slack Set Status option will only set your Status for the authenticated Slack account in Zapier as indicated in the description of the screenshot.
You’d have to leverage the Slack API: https://api.slack.com/docs/presence-and-status
App APIs can be used in Zap steps with the Webhook app: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/integrations
