RAI suggests Starry Form may be used instead of Wildshape, not in addition to, but check with the DM.
As this answer to a related question points out, Wildshape states:
You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so.
So you can use the Starry Form feature ...
The attacker would have Disadvantage, but can target the Ranger.
Assuming the attacker knows the Fey Wanderer Ranger was there at all and tried to attack them, the related rule is in the PHB pages 194-195, emphasis mine:
When you attack a target that you can't see, you have disadvantage on the attack roll. This is true whether you're guessing the target'...
Yes, They are un-Targetable
Based on the wording of the trait.
The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of any turn during which you hit it with an attack roll, forced it to make a saving throw, or dealt damage to it.
So long as the Fey Wanderer does not attack or or use a spell on the target it shouldn't be able to target you.
The only way i ...
The main issues with the Ranger are due to the weakness of the first two class features, Favored Enemy and Natural Explorer. Here's the rules text (from page 91 of the Player's Handbook and the Basic Rules):
Beginning at 1st level, you have significant experience studying,
tracking, hunting, and even talking to a certain type of enemy....
WOTC acknowledged in the preface of Unearthed Arcana: Revised Ranger that the Ranger Archetype beast master has been unpopular to play as it is underpowered.
Many players want to play rangers, but few were happy with the class,
which held its place at the bottom of class power rankings by a
significant margin. The class’s individual features also ...
No, I don't think it would be unbalanced.
Here's my experience with it:
A hat of wizardry (XGtE, p. 137) is a common magic item for wizards that lets you try to cast any cantrip on your spell list once per day after an Arcana check:
[...] While you are wearing it, you gain the following benefits:
You can try to cast a cantrip that you ...
I'll cover things again, so as to try to get a single, complete list, and because I think there are some additional points to mention. I make the split into two categories:
Buffing your own save DC:
Improving your wisdom score up to 20:
Ability score improvements
Feats: Resilient, Observant, Elven Accuracy (XGtE; Elves, half-elves)

Ranged attack within 5' is at disadvantage.
TL;DR Your interpretation is correct. The attack is at disadvantage.
Ranged attack in close combat at disadvantage
The Revived Rogue published as Unearthed Arcana gets a ranged attack inflicting necrotic damage, which is going to be an issue for shooting while opponents are immediately next to a character.
You can make it, but you won't be nourished
Performance of Creation from the UA College of Creation states:
As an action, you can create one nonmagical item of your choice in an unoccupied space within 10 feet of you...
The created item disappears at the end of your next turn, unless you use your action to maintain it. Each time you ...
The way it is printed, it's HP are calculated by (lvl×5) + 2(CON bonus) + (players INT bonus).
As to whether the Steel Defender should have more HP then the Artificer, it's a guardian - it darn well should have more HP than what it's protecting. The fact that it might not seems off.
The formula looks off because it gets its CON bonus to HP only once, ...
Older UA content used to suggest against multiclassing
UA articles presenting new subclasses used to include the following line in the "This is Playtesting Content" sidebar that precedes every UA content.
As is typical in Unearthed Arcana, the options here haven’t been tuned for multiclassing.
The most recent UA article to include such observation was "...
