Are there any magic users that are capable of overwriting magical laws to a degree that would be required to remove any limitations and completely perfect existing spells?

To be clear, I’m looking for a specific example of a caster in Pathfinder lore. Can be an NPC, divine, even a plain old human, anything goes as long as it’s from official lore.

For example, stone shield requires a large amount of earth, so it can’t be used on say a frozen lake. Ice spear melts and thus can’t be used as a permanent barrier save places like the arctic and wouldn’t last very long in hot areas such as the desert. Astral projection has the silver thread. There are very few ways to get around energy resistance short of changing the element. Even something like ignoring components or casting spells instantly would be a major improvement.

Can such a mage exist that is capable of making spells work perfectly with no weaknesses?

Even something like ignoring components (...) would be a major improvement.

Razmir from The Inner Sea World Guide created his arcane Razmiran Priests, base class version (found underaanother name in OGL Content due to copyright). These arcane casters can ignore even the costly material components if they are using a divine focus, and cast spells from items (like scrolls) without using up any charges or destroying the item. In the lore, such changes were made possible by the Razmir himself.
