I've got lots of cracks in my concrete drive. Is there a sealant type gun that can be used to fill these that is long lasting?

Why are the cracks happening? Is it settlement or are plants growing through?
Was the surface properly prepared before the concrete was poured? If not then don't bother pouring concrete...you will just get more cracks. If it was prepared properly then it's probably settlement etc. You can make a runny mixture of concrete and pour down.

It's a 50+ year old driveway, lots of thin cracks maybe from expansion with weeds going through! I don't know the history but guess could be age!

It's either crack relay, prep and lay above or live with it.
