I have lived among the forests with trees in abundance for many years but alas, we are considering a move to Idaho Falls where I notice there are not many trees. I like the area in the eastern part of the city where we could have a bit of acreage but there are honestly no trees. If I were to put in a bunch of trees like pines and colorful fall trees like maples, will they do well there?

Trees do very well here, including many varieties of pine and spruce (there is a spruce nursery nearby as well) and all kinds of deciduous trees, including many maples (I have several), as well as hundreds of other varieties.
Stop by Town & Country nursery and talk to their arborist about the many varieties that do well here.
Be aware that water is metered in this area now, so steer clear of landscaping that is thirsty in the summer.

There are a lot of mature trees all over Idaho Falls! You must have only checked out the new housing, Kins... the new places haven't been around long enough for the trees to grow up yet.

Maples do especially well in Idaho Falls, but so does Ash, Linden, and some other deciduous hardwoods. Aspens are native, and birch grows readily here, but I think there's a birch disease that may be present here, as the birch don't seem to be doing as well as they've always done before.

All the pine varieties grow here, and quite a few are native. Cottonwoods are natives, as is a lot of shrubbery. A lot of flowering trees grow readily, as do apples, pears, apricot, and peach trees, although they all need winter protection of some kind to do their best.
