comment Can Commander's Strike allow an ally to cast a spell or use a magic item?
You've written the D8 bonus as being to attack, though the OP quote says it's to damage?

comment Close-quarters spellcaster – Not a gish
True, although Str 15 is almost accidental, as they add +2. The 13 could go to, what, Wis? Doesn't make much difference…

comment Combining Dueling and Two Weapon Fighting styles
Yes, the key thing is that the option to make a bonus action attack is granted when taking an Attack action with a light weapon in the other hand. If the other hand is empty when the Attack action is made, there is no option to take a bonus action to make another attack.

comment Must the Flurry of Blows attacks occur after the initial (and extra) attack?
Nice contrast: the Shield Master feat says "If you take the Attack action on your turn, you can use a bonus action to try to shove a creature within 5 feet of you with your shield". No timing specified, and Jeremy Crawford has stated that this can be done before the attack.

comment How does a shadow monk teleport into magical darkness if they don't have line of sight to a square inside of it?
Shadow Step specifically states you must be able to see the target location. In contrast, you don't need to see the target of a fireball.

comment Is there any practical or mathematical difference between player rolling vs. DM rolling?
+1 It's much easier to modify your own rolls than to modify someone else's. Other examples are Bardic Inspiration and the Lucky feat. Contrast that with the clumsiness of the Shield spell.

comment How many times can the effect of Hail of Thorns be activated?
Could you clarify: do you think this means the ranger could miss with lots of attacks before getting it to trigger, maybe several turns later?

revised Revised Ranger's Beast Conclave companion hit die, ASIs, and multiclassing
I think you mean 'character' level (total of all class levels) rather than class level (which class?).
