comment Rogue with Mirror Image up and Sentinel feat
I understand this interpretation of Sentinel + Mirror Image. But it does bring up a weird hitch about what happens after the Sentinel attacks. At some level this kind of breaks the illusion because we now know the true target, it's the thing that just hit us. In the normal course of things, any of the images could do damage because the attacker thinks they're all real. But after the Sentinel reaction, the (intelligent) attacker knows exactly which one is real, especially if they have multi-attack. Not sure how I would rule on this though.

comment How to assign exp for indirect kills
So clearly they get full XP for dispatching the enemy. But this tactic kind of surprises me. (A) enemies worth that many HP usually have more just a the 5 or 10 HP caused by a fire. (B) typical old-world tents are not normally designed to burn very easily. They're normally made of leather and covered in some hydrophobic material. If you look at the classic Teepee, they were actually designed to have fires inside of them (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tipi)

comment Barkskin and Wild Shape
The answer below is yes, I would add that this is pretty much the "bread and butter" operation for Druids who like to Wild Shape a lot. You cast Barkskin and then Wild Shape into a bear, you're now an extra tough bear. Yes, Druids are amazing at soaking up damage.

comment Can monsters with multiattack take grapple and shove actions?
Unless those monsters are NPCs with classes. Oh except the stat blocks for the NPCs include the same silliness. So the Assassin from the MM can only multi-attack with a Shortsword, but not a Dagger. In fact the Assassin doesn't list "Dagger" in the stat block. So if we follow your logic and I give the Assassin a dagger, he can't use it anyways.

comment Should “resistance to damage from non-magical weapons” continue to affect monster CR once the party has magical weapons?
Plus having the required magic weapon may not be everything you need. What if you're disarmed of the weapon? What if you have NPCs in the party? What if there's a TWF with only one magical weapon? There are lots of ways this can affect the party.
